PositionBullslaughter Bay, St Govans
DetailsTenby’s RNLI all weather lifeboat was requested to launch for the second time in the day just after 9pm on Thursday 15th August, following fears over the safety of some climbers after a report that climbing gear had been found at the top of the cliff near Bullslaughter Bay, with the owners nowhere to be seen.

The lifeboat was quickly on the water and made best speed towards the scene, 10 miles West of Tenby, while Tenby and St Govans Coastguard rescue teams and Coastguard rescue helicopter 187 also made their way.

Once on scene, the volunteer crew began their search from Stackpole Head towards Bullslaughter Bay.

With darkness fast approaching, it was decided to launch Angle all-weather lifeboat so that the search for anyone in difficulty could be widened.

Some time later, the helicopter spotted some climbers and directed Angle lifeboat to their position and while speaking to them, they confirmed it was their climbing gear and that they were in no difficulty.

All units stood down and returned to their respective stations, with Tenby lifeboat arriving back on station at about 12.15am.
