Tenby’s relief all-weather lifeboat launched after dog goes over cliff at Barafundle . . . .
Tenby’s relief RNLI all-weather lifeboat was requested to launch shortly before 3.30pm on 30th December following a report from a concerned member of the public that his dog had gone over the cliff at Barafundle.
The lifeboat was soon on the water and the volunteer crew made best speed to the scene, some 11 miles west of Tenby.
As the lifeboat was within a few hundred metres of Barafundle, the Coastguard received a further call stating that the owner had managed to coax the dog to swim back around to Barafundle beach and that both the dog and owner were now safe and well ashore.
The lifeboat was then stood down and returned to station, arriving at 4.20pm.
The owners and the dog came to the station on New Year’s Day after the Lifeboat recovered from the Saundersfoot swim to say thank-you.
