Porthcawl RNLI’s volunteer crew were tasked by HM Coastguard to assess the situation with a jet bike which had suffered mechanical failure off Pink Bay, Porthcawl.

The charity’s Atlantic 85 lifeboat “Rose of the Shires” was launched on service. Once the lifeboat arrived on scene the helm decided the best way to assist the casualty was to take it under tow back to its launch site at Newton.
