Georgina Taylor requested to launch after 2 children go missing on Castle Beach
Tenby’s RNLI inshore lifeboat was requested to launch at 4.04pm on Sunday 23rd July after a report that two children had gone missing on Castle Beach.
As the volunteer crew were about to launch the boat, the missing children were found safe and well by the RNLI beach lifeguards so the lifeboat was stood down.
