Angle RNLI lifeboat alerted after motor boat runs aground
Angle RNLI’s all weather lifeboat was launched on Monday afternoon (September 19) to assist a nine metre motor boat, which had run aground off Pwllcrochan Flats in the Milford Haven Waterway. There were four people on board.
With no reported damage or water ingress, the motor boat made her way to Neyland Marina escorted by the lifeboat.
With the casualty in the safety of the marina, the lifeboat was released to return to her station, where she was rehoused at 4.43pm.
