Penarth RNLI volunteers in Sully Island Rescue
Penarth's volunteer lifeboat crews launched their D class lifeboat shortly after 12.45pm this afternoon, Saturday 9th June 2018.
The D class lifeboat returned to station, to be refueled and made ready for its next service call.
As this spate of good weather continues we would remind everyone to take care around the water and ensure they know the tide times in the area, as the bristol channel has the second highest tidal range in the world.
