Tenby all-weather lifeboat launched after walker gets stuck on Worm’s Head . . . .

Tenby’s RNLI all-weather lifeboat launched at 2.55pm on Wednesday 25 January 2017 following a report that a walker was cut off by the incoming tide 16 miles away at Worm’s Head.

The volunteer crew made best speed in choppy seas towards Worm’s Head where they were tasked to stand by and provide safety cover to Horton & Port Eynon Inshore lifeboat as they attempted to retrieve the casualty in a south-easterly swell on the limitations of the boat.

As the lifeboat arrived on scene, the Inshore lifeboat reported that they had successfully managed to get the casualty off the rocks.

With nobody left in danger and the Inshore lifeboat returning to station with the casualty, the lifeboat was stood down and returned to station, arriving at 4.40pm.
