Rescue teams attended a call for people trapped by the incoming tide near Freshwater East yesterday evening.

At 5.30pm on Saturday, October 17, Tenby Coastguard rescue team, along with HM Coastguard St Govans and Tenby RNLI all-weather lifeboats (ALB), were paged to a report of persons cut off by the tide at Trewent point, Freshwater East.

Upon arrival at the scene, the possible casualties were located by a coastguard officer and identified as fishermen.
