Penarth’s D Class lifeboat being brought ashore (RNLI library photo)

Penarth’s D Class lifeboat was launched last night – tasked to Sully Island where 5 people were said to be “in immediate danger of being cut off by the tide”.

All five managed to wade ashore against the incoming tide and were reported to be safe and well.

On her return trip to Penarth, the lifeboat encountered a broken-down jet ski with 3 people on board and towed it back to Cardiff Bay where the trio were transferred to the care of Penarth Coastguard.

    We all know the danger of trying to get across from sully Island,people still continue to try and cross it,they should be charged.

  2. The Tax payer says:

    Another payment for the coast guards to take the names and addresses of the people towed in by the lifeboat. Why don’t they just get this information off the RNLI by email and save us Tax payers some money as the RNLI is not funded by the government ??
