UK Coastguard paged our volunteer crew following a report that there were people possibly cut off by the tide at Witches Point, Southerndown.
Both the charity’s D Class and Atlantic 85 lifeboats were launched on service and the team from Llantwit Major Coastguard were also tasked. When the crew arrived on scene at Witches Point the lifeboats did a shoreline search of the area and were able to establish that there were a number of people fishing in the area but no one in difficulty. The lifeboats were stood down and returned to station where they were refuelled and made ready for service.
In a coastal emergency dial 999 and ask for the Coastguard.
