Tenby Inshore lifeboat launched after person reported to be in difficulty

Lifeguards News Release

Tenby’s RNLI inshore lifeboat was launched at 10.25am on Saturday 21st April following a report to Milford Haven Coastguard that a person was in difficulty between Lydstep and Old Castle Head.

The volunteer lifeboat crew were requested to perform a shoreline search between Lydstep and Manorbier.

As the lifeboat was between Giltar Point and Lydstep, a further call to the Coastguard from the Police confirmed that the person had been found safe and well so the lifeboat was stood down and returned to station.
