Georgina Taylor launched after man gets into trouble rescuing sheep . . . .
Tenby’s RNLI inshore lifeboat was requested to launch shortly after 12.30pm today (Tuesday 18th April) following a report to Milford Haven Coastguard that a male had become stuck on rocks some 200 metres off Barafundle beach after climbing them to attempt to rescue a sheep and a lamb.
The volunteer crew were quickly on the water and made best speed to Barafundle, some nine miles west of Tenby.
As the lifeboat was approaching the scene, coastguard teams that were already on the beach reported that the original casualty had made it to safety and that a second male had now rescued the sheep and was making his way back to the shore.
The lifeboat was requested to stand off and provide safety cover until the second casualty made it back to the beach, to the awaiting Coastguard teams.
The lifeboat then returned to station, arriving at 2pm.
