TWO people were rescued by Cardigan RNLI lifeboat yesterday evening (Thursday, July 11) after getting into trouble on the banks of the River Teifi.

The alarm was raised by two officers from Natural Resources Wales. They were carrying out an anti-poaching patrol on the Teifi when they came across the two people, who had fallen down a steep ravine.

They were in serious difficulty and had been trapped on the river bank for several hours.
They quickly called for emergency assistance and used their local knowledge to direct RNLI and Coastguard rescue crews to their exact location
The inshore lifeboat launched from its Poppit Sands base at 6.30pm and carried out a search along the river bank near Cwmdu.
The two people were found and although one of them had been in the water up to their knees and were both cold, they were otherwise safe and well.
They were picked up by the lifeboat and returned to shore where they were checked over by Cardigan Coastguard.
The lifeboat returned to station at 8.10pm.
