Haydn Miller assists vessel with engine failure 4 miles south of Caldey Island . . . .

At approximately 9.30pm this evening, Thursday 6 April, Tenby’s RNLI all-weather lifeboat Haydn Miller was requested to launch after a report from the crew of a 30ft fishing vessel stating that they had suffered engine failure some 4 miles south of Caldey Island.

The lifeboat made best speed towards the position and quickly located the fishing vessel, before going alongside.

The skipper of the casualty vessel, which had been heading for Burry Port, then requested a tow to Tenby.

The volunteer crew took the vessel in tow towards Tenby, arriving at 11:20pm. Once the casualty vessel was safely moored off the lifeboat slip, the two crew were taken aboard the lifeboat which then re-housed.
