The Tamar class lifeboat Mark Mason was launched shortly after 2pm. When she reached the scene, it was reported that the casualty had been assisted ashore by a member of the public.

The lifeboat’s Y Boat was deployed and her crew went ashore to assess whether any medical attention was needed. While carrying out the assessments, an ambulance arrived.

With the casualty being handed over to ambulance personnel, the Y Boat was recovered and the lifeboat was released to return to her station, where she was rehoused just after 3pm.

It was the third alert in two weeks for RNLI Angle.

On November 16, its all weather and inshore lifeboats were alerted after a report that a surfer was in difficulty off the beach at Freshwater West on the south Pembrokeshire coast.

As the lifeboat crews mustered at their station, they were put on standby following reports that the surfer was safely ashore.

Once the Coastguards were satisfied that the surfer was safe, and no other persons were involved, the two lifeboats were stood down.

On 7 November, the all weather lifeboat was alerted after a report of a sinking vessel near Black Tar, Llangwm, in the upper reaches of the Milford Haven Waterway. There was one person on board the casualty.

The lifeboat volunteers were paged at 8.38 am and were preparing to launch 10 minutes later, when it was reported that the casualty had been assisted ashore by another vessel.

Once satisfied that no assistance was required, the lifeboat was stood down at 8.55am.
