Tenby’s RNLI all-weather lifeboat was launched at 9:20am on Tuesday 9th June following a report that a kayak was possibly in difficulty off Manorbier.

The lifeboat was soon on the water, and made best speed to Manorbier. Once on scene, the volunteer crew were notified by a local fishing vessel that they had spotted the kayak and dropped them safely ashore at Manorbier, where they were met by members of HM Coastguard Tenby.

The Haydn Miller returned to station, arriving at 10.10am.
