Sunday night call for Penarth RNLI crews.
As many were settling down in front of the TV on Sunday evening, the volunteer crew members from Penarth lifeboat station were paged to launch.
A relatively quick service call for crew members, who were able to return to their families, just in time to plan the working week ahead!
