The child was bodyboarding off Newgale North beach when she got caught in a rip current at around 11.30am today. The man spotted the girl in trouble and swam out to help her but was also caught in the rip tide.

Two lifeguards grabbed rescue boards and paddled out to save them. The pair were brought back to the beach and assessed but found "thankfully unharmed" according to the RNLI.

It has prompted warnings from the lifesaving charity who say they have rescued six body boarders in waters off Pembrokeshire this week.

If you’re heading to the coast this weekend please remember to respect the water and swim at a lifeguarded beach. If you spot someone in trouble please don’t attempt the rescue yourself – either tell a lifeguard or phone 999 and ask for the Coastguard.

– Stuart Penfold, RNLI Lifeguard Supervisor

RNLI lifeguards provide a daily safety service on both Newgale North and South beach from 10am-6pm throughout the summer season.
