Tenby RNLI lifeboat launched following report of fisherman cut off by tide at Monkstone . . . .
Tenby’s all weather lifeboat launched into rough seas at approximately 02.40am on Monday 26 October following a report from Dyfed Powys Police that a fisherman had contacted them saying he was cut off by the tide whilst fishing off Monkstone beach.
The lifeboat made best speed toward Monkstone. As they were arriving however, the casualty made a further call to the Police stating that he had now managed to make it safely ashore and was on the coast path on the way back to the caravan that he was staying in above the beach. Once this was confirmed by the Milford Haven Coastguard, the lifeboat was stood down and returned to station.
