The county council has issued a statement regarding the incident that saw a Richards Bros bus hit by a large wave at Newgale on Saturday, prompting the rescue of more than 10 people.

The council said: "Pembrokeshire County Council’s own enquiries confirmed that the road was in the process of being closed and that signage was being erected at Pen-y-Cwm, north of Newgale.

"However, the Council operatives at Pen-y-Cwm were already directing traffic to use an alternative safe route avoiding the Newgale road

"The bus driver was informed of the situation at Newgale and that the alternative route should be followed.

"However the driver chose to continue his journey along the main road.

"A Council operative followed the bus in his own car equipped with a flashing orange beacon on the roof.  He was also flashing his headlights in an attempt the stop the bus but was unsuccessful. 

"A member of the public on the bridge at the bottom Pen-y-Cwm Hill also tried to flag the bus down with a torch but he too was unsuccessful.

"The Council has provided information to the Police in relation to their investigation into the incident."

Richards Bros has been contacted and a response is awaited.

Bit unfair of you to post Pembs CC press release about the bus driver as fact - Its just their claim, just PCC press office doing their automatic response - NOT OUR FAULT - the Bus company tells us they WERE allowed through with the warning - Take Care

if they say the road "was in the process of being closed " then - it was NOT actually closed.
So bus driver was not prevented from proceeding.
Road closed - definitely NOT.
Bus driver should have been turned back for safety sake.
