RNLI volunteers launch for the seventh time to the same location since lockdown.
Barry Dock and Penarth lifeboats launched to four people cut off by the tide on Sully Island.
The crews from Barry Dock and Penarth lifeboat stations were requested to launch on Sunday 31 May at around 11.20 am by Milford Haven Coastguard to a report that four people had been cut off by the tide on Sully Island.
On reaching Sully Island the lifeboats located them with Barry Dock inshore lifeboat returning all four safely to the shore to the waiting coastguard team.
The Penarth lifeboat crew searched the rest of the island to ensure nobody else was on the island.
This was the seventh shout to Sully Island during the lockdown and
Barry Dock coxswain Martin Bowmer said: 'The danger of people being cut off by the tide on Sully Island is not that they are trapped on the island for six hours, but the strong possibility that if they try and return to the mainland they would get into serious difficulty.'
The RNLI advice for people in Wales is 'Stop. Think. Stay Safe.' If you find yourself in difficulty or see someone else in danger phone 999 and ask for the coastguard.
