UK Coastguard tasked Porthcawl’s volunteer RNLI crew to assist with a multi-agency search between Porthcawl seafront and Rest Bay. The charity’s Atlantic 85 lifeboat Rose of the Shires and the relief D Class lifeboat Super G II were both launched on service to conduct a shoreline search.

After a search of around 45 minutes the lifeboats were stood down as the incident was successfully resolved.
