Cardigan RNLI lifeboat launched to help two people trapped on river bank
Cardigan RNLI in-shore lifeboat was launched in the early evening of 11 July following a report of two people in difficulty on the bank of the River Tivy
Both persons were found, and although one of the party had been in the water up to their knees and they were both cold, they appeared to be well and were taken to safety by the lifeboat where HM Coastguard were waiting to provide any further assistance necessary.
The lifeboat returned to Cardigan Lifeboat Station at 8:10pm.
