THE RNLI Penarth crew were called out to four separate events on Sunday.

The volunteer crew at Penarth were paged to launch their lifeboat at 2.30pm to reports of a jet ski that had run aground on a sand bar to the west of the Monkstone lighthouse, and a man and his two friends (on separate jet skis) were unable to refloat the machine. The D class lifeboat with four crew members on board located the vessel and after a couple of attempts the jet ski was back on the water.

The second call out was to two adults and a child who had been cut off by the tide at Sully Island, who were brought safely back to the shore.

The lifeboat was then diverted, along with local Coastguard Teams to help an injured woman at who had fallen near the pier entrance - with a suspected back/leg injury.

Together with Penarth Coastguard Rescue aid was provided whilst waiting for an emergency ambulance.

The lifeboat was then also mobilised to Lavernock point as a substantial rock fall had been seen, and a check of the area was made in case anyone had been injured.
