48 TWITCHERS RESCUED AT SEA

48 passengers have been rescued from a bird watching cruise when the boat began to sink off the Pembrokeshire coast.

The ‘Lady Helen’ was heading to Skomer Island from Martin’s Haven when she ran aground. A mayday call was sent and she was rescued by sister boat ‘The Dale Princess’.
Diver Dr P. Crossland, who also raced to the incident aboard ‘Over Dale’ said, 'There were a lot of elderly people and around six children... There was one woman with Multiple Sclerosis who struggled to get off. The water was really beginning to pump through really quite badly.'

Milford Haven Coastguard, Barrie Yelland, told the press, 'Everyone has done an excellent job carrying out this rescue, including all the various vessels that responded. Special thanks must go out to the boat Over Dale.'
