Two-Teenagers-Stranded-On-Old-Gas-Pipeline

Byline: Two teenagers out for an evening walk became stranded, in complete darkness, on old gas pipelines in the River Neath.
Page Content:    Two teenagers who were walking along the coastal path, decided to walk out along disused gas pipelines which were 4-5 feet high and jutted out into the River Neath from the old BP refinery. With a high tide and darkness closing in they became disorientated and were afraid to walk back to dry land as the pipeline was surrounded by marshy ground, so sensibly called the coastguard and their parents to alert them to the situation. Port Talbot lifeboat was tasked to go to their aid and soon arrived on scene, together with the local coastguard team. The lifeboat was unable to get close to the pipeline so one of the crew was put ashore at an old slipway in the river and met up with the coastguard. They then proceeded along the path to the site and were able to escort the teenagers back onto dry land where they were handed over to the coastguard and were no the worse for their ordeal.
