BARRY Dock RNLI lifeboat volunteers have launched for the fourth time since the coronavirus lockdown to people cut off by the tide on Sully Island.

Barry Dock inshore lifeboat launched at 3.15pm, on Sunday, April 19, to reports of two people cut off on Sully Island, off the Vale of Glamorgan coast.

The Barry Dock volunteers located the two people and returned them safely to the shore where the police were in attendance.

A spokesman for the RNLI Barry Dock lifeboat said: “This is the fourth time since the government lockdown that the Barry Dock lifeboat has responded to people being cut off on Sully Island. “This is putting the lives of volunteer crew in danger due to the covid-19 virus.”
