The Lifeboat crew had been paged by HM Coastguard following a call from a concerned member of the public and were tasked to a despondent at well know local beauty spot, Coppermines, near Porth Dafarch beach.

Fortunately, as both of the station’s boats, the Atlantic 85 and D Class, reached the area the Police arrived at the scene and a lady; believed to be in her 30’s, was led away.

Crew member Tomm Moffett, who had just finished his shift as a care worker in a local care home, commented ‘it’s a tough time for people at the moment but we are glad she is ok and getting looked after, we wish her well’.
