Tenby’s Inshore lifeboat was tasked to launch just before 3.30pm on Sunday 13th May after a report that several children were cut off by the incoming tide on a sandbank at the back of the pier.

The lifeboat was on scene within a minute of launching, but before they got there, the children had managed to get themselves to safety. The lifeboat was stood down and returned to station.
