Haydn Miller launched after report of person climbing rocks near Freshwater East
Tenby’s RNLI all-weather lifeboat was requested to launch shortly after 5.30pm on Friday 29th January, after a concerned member of the public saw someone climbing rocks near Freshwater East, with diminishing light and an incoming tide.
The lifeboat was quickly on the water and the volunteer crew made best speed to the area. Once on scene, the casualty was located near the top of the cliff using the search lights on the lifeboat, where they were met on the cliff path above by members of St Govans Coastguard Rescue Team.
The lifeboat was then stood down to return to station, arriving at 6.10pm.

The RNLI is independent of Coastguard and government and depends on voluntary donations and legacies to maintain its rescue service. Since the RNLI was founded in 1824, its lifeboat crews and lifeguards have saved over 142,700 lives.
