Angle-lifeboat-investigates-sightings-of-red-flares

Byline: RNLI Angle’s all weather lifeboat was launched at 8.30 on Wednesday night (20 November), at the request of Milford Haven Coastguard, following two separate reports of red flares sighted in the vicinity of Pennar Gut on the Milford Haven Waterway.
Page Content: The Tamar class lifeboat, Mark Mason, conducted a radar search while proceeding to the position, and once on scene, at 8.42pm, searched within the Gut. The lifeboat then searched back down river towards the lifeboat station.

As there was no evidence of any vessel in distress, the lifeboat was stood down to return to her station, where she was rehoused at 9.26pm.
