Lifeboats News Release

Shortly after returning from the previous shout, the Haydn Miller was requested to launch for a second time in the day, this time after a report that someone was possibly in difficulty in the water off Pendine.

The volunteer crew made best speed to Pendine and started to search for the casualty.

As it is able to get much closer to shore, the Y-boat was launched with two crew members aboard. The casualty was quickly located and brought ashore to the awaiting Police, Ambulance and Coastguard Teams.

The lifeboat then returned to station, arriving at 5.15pm
