Both lifeboats in search for missing persons
Tenby's all-weather lifeboat was requested to launch at 11.40pm on Thursday 17th June, after a report that several people were lost, possibly cut off by the tide at Monkstone.
The inshore lifeboat was soon tasked to join the search, as were St Govans and Llansteffan Coastguard Rescue Teams.
As the lifeboats were searching between Monkstone and Waterwynch, the casualties were spotted amongst rocks and the inshore lifeboat went in to retrieve them. They were then taken aboard the all-weather lifeboat, where they were checked over for any injuries, before being taken back to Tenby Harbour, where they were met by Police.
The lifeboats then returned to station, arriving at 1.33am.
