Cardigan RNLI Lifeboat launched to investigate floating kayaks in River Teifi
Cardigan RNLI Lifeboat was launched today (12 September) following a report of two kayaks seen floating in the River Teifi near the old bridge.
The crew of the D-Class lifeboat, Elsie Ida Mead, searched the area around the bridge and further up river but didn't find any kayaks. The lifeboat returned to the station at 3:15pm.
Key facts about the RNLI

The RNLI operates over 238 lifeboat stations in the UK and Ireland and, in a normal year, more than 240 lifeguard units on beaches around the UK and Channel Islands. The RNLI is independent of Coastguard and government and depends on voluntary donations and legacies to maintain its rescue service. Since the RNLI was founded in 1824, its lifeboat crews and lifeguards have saved over 142,700 lives.
