The D Class lifeboat “Spirit of Penarth II” returning from her mission this afternoon

Penarth lifeboat was launched this afternoon to go the aid of a 15-year-old  teenage girl who was reported to have been marooned, alone, on Sully Island.

With choppy seas and high winds in the Bristol Channel the crew of the D Class lifeboat “Spirit of Penarth II”  set out to investigate the report at the behest of Milford Haven Copastguard .

Sully Island – at high tide

The lifeboat crew discovered that there were a number of anglers on the island during high-tide – when it is cut off from the mainland – but there was no sign of the girl reported to have been “marooned” there.

She was later found to be safe and well on the mainland . Despite the spell of recent warm weather over the summer there have been  fewer lifeboat launches than usual during the peak holiday period.
