St Davids RNLI responds to concerns of object in the water
St Davids RNLI volunteers were requested to launch the inshore lifeboat last night (28 August) after receiving reports of an object in the water.
The volunteer lifeboat crew launched the inshore lifeboat Trevor & Myrtle Gurr at 9pm to reports of an object reported in the water near Porthclais Harbour by a member of the public. The volunteer crew searched the area and nothing untoward was found. St Davids Coastguard Rescue Team were also in attendance conducting a cliff top search.
The inshore lifeboat was rehoused and ready for service again at 9:55pm.
This was a false alarm with good intent, if you see something you are concerned about on the coast please call the 999 and ask for the Coastguard.
