Busy start to week for Tenby lifeboats

Lifeboats News Release

The first shout of the day came when the all-weather lifeboat was requested to launch at 2.15pm on Monday 26th June, after a report that somebody looked to be in trouble on the cliff top between Stackpole and Barafundle.

As the volunteer crew were making their way to the scene, it was confirmed that the person was in no danger and the lifeboat was stood down, arriving back at station at 2.40pm.

The second shout of the day came at 6.50pm, when the inshore lifeboat was requested to launch after two teenagers reported they were cut off by the incoming tide somewhere between Tenby and Saundersfoot.

The lifeboat was quickly on the water and started a search from 1st Point towards Monkstone. As they were passing Brown Slade, the casualties were spotted waving to them from the rocks.

They were taken aboard the lifeboat and returned to Tenby where they were met by Tenby Coastguard Team and Police.
