Haydn Miller tasked to capsized dinghy off Ferryside.

Lifeboats News Release

Tenby's all-weather lifeboat was requested to launch shortly after 5pm on Tuesday 8th June, following a report of a capsized dinghy off Ferryside, with the two occupants struggling to right the vessel. Burry Port lifeboat was also tasked.

As the volunteer crew made best speed to the area, some 14 miles north-east of Tenby, the coastguard received a report that the crew of the casualty vessel had managed to right it and were no longer in difficulty. The lifeboat was stood down to return to station.
