RNLI/Ifer Gwyn

On Sunday the 18th of June, the Station's Atlantic 85 Lifeboat, Doris Joan, was requested to launch on two occasions to persons reported to be in trouble near Black Rock Sands. On both occasions, the persons reported in difficulty had managed to get ashore without the Lifeboat's assistance.

On Monday afternoon at 4.45pm, the Station's inshore rescue boat, Margaret a Nantw, was launched following reports of a person in difficulty in the water near Ynys Gifftan. The reported casualty was ashore upon the Lifeboat's arrival.
