UK Coastguard tasked Porthcawl RNLI’s Atlantic 85 along with Port Talbot RNLI’s D Class and the Coastguard Helicopter based at St. Athan following a 999 call with concerns regarding an object that had been seen floating in the water off Morfa Sands (between Sker Point and Port Talbot).

After a brief search of the area the object was located and identified as being a deceased sheep and therefore no further cause for concern. All search units were stood down and made their way back to their various stations.
