UK Coastguard tasked Porthcawl RNLI’s volunteer crew following a report they’d received from Porthcawl NCI that a group of 5 people were cut off by the tide on the southern side of Dunraven Bay, Southerndown.

Both the charity’s D Class lifeboat, Hugo Missen and Atlantic 85 lifeboat, Rose of the Shires were launched on service and made best speed to the location in moderate seas.

Whilst the lifeboats proceeded to the scene Porthcawl NCI monitored the situation using their cameras and provided a live feed to UK Coastguard.

All the casualties managed to self rescue from the location shortly before the lifeboats arrived on scene.

The lifeboats conducted a thorough search of all the usual locations where people get cut off by the tide in the Southerndown area before being stood down and returning to station.
