TENBY’S inshore lifeboat was launched on Sunday afternoon, May 27, after a report that a family of three were cut off by the tide at Monkstone, near Saundersfoot.

The lifeboat was launched just before 4.30pm.

After a brief search, the volunteer crew located the family, before the helm negotiated his way through the rocks to get to them.

The man, and his son and daughter, were taken aboard the lifeboat and checked over to make sure they were unharmed, before being returned to Saundersfoot Harbour, where they were met by members of Tenby Coastguard Rescue Team.
