DetailsBoth of Tenby’s lifeboats were launched shortly after 7.30pm on Friday 18th September, after a report four people were cut off on rocks near Telpyn Point.

The volunteer crew made best speed to the area in choppy seas and once on scene, spotted the casualties with a swell breaking at their feet.

With the all-weather lifeboat providing safety cover, the inshore lifeboat went into the rocks and despite the swell, managed to get all four off and out into the safety of deeper water.

After being checked over to rule out the need for any medical treatment, they were then dropped ashore at a nearby beach, where they were met by Tenby Coastguard Rescue Team.

The lifeboats then returned to station, arriving at 8.25pm.
