Lifeboat requested after fishing vessel part its moorings during Storm Diana

Tenby’s RNLI all-weather lifeboat ‘Haydn Miller’ was requested to launch at 8.45pm on Wednesday 28th November, following a report that a vessel had broken free of its moorings in Saundersfoot harbour and was drifting out of the harbour.

It is thought that the local fishing vessel parted its moorings during a run in the harbour caused by Storm Diana.

As the crew were preparing to launch the lifeboat, news came through that the vessel had grounded on rocks outside the harbour and sunk. As there was nothing the lifeboat could do, the crew were stood down.
