Early hours call out for Aberystwyth Lifeboat Crew
The continued warm weather has seen an increase in the number of incidents and Aberystwyth Lifeboat launched twice in the past 24 hours.
The volunteer crew were paged again at 02.30am this morning to reports of a person in difficulty off North Beach Aberystwyth. Following launch, the lifeboat crew stood by off Aberystwyth whilst the casualty was assisted by HM Coastguard.
