Cliff Rescue

Once on scene it was discovered that a second boy had also got into difficulties on the cliff and both were stranded in a cave.

Due to sea conditions it was decided it would be safer to recover the boys up the cliff.

Coastguard teams from St Davids and Fishguard brought the boys safely to the top of the cliff while both lifeboats stood by to give safety cover.

The boys did not require any medical assistance, with this rescue completed both lifeboats returned to station.
