UK Coastguard tasked Porthcawl RNLI’s volunteer crew following a report of a paddleboarder in difficulty off Trecco Bay. The charity’s D Class lifeboat Hugo Misssen was launched on service and it was swiftly established the paddleboarder was actually a large log.

The lifeboat was stood down and returned to station to be made ready for service.
