UK Coastguard requested the launch of our Atlantic 85 lifeboat following a report from a concerned member of the public regarding two paddleboarders off Newton Point. The paddleboarders appeared to be struggling in the conditions. The lifeboat arrived on scene to find the paddleboarders were now making good progress back towards Ogmore by sea and were well equipped and happy to continue without any assistance from the lifeboat crew. The lifeboat was stood down and returned to station. If you have concerns for something you’ve seen on the coast dial 999 and ask for the Coastguard.
