Penarth RNLI crews conduct searches for missing people
Penarth's volunteer lifeboat crews were kept busy again today, 31 August 2018 with two shouts in quick succession.
A second call was then received to a second missing person, a full search was conducted with nothing found and we were stood down by Milford Haven coastguards when the second person made contact via police.
Successful outcomes for both searches, our boat returned to station and ready for service by 4.25pm.
