A 12 year-old boy has been rescued from cliffs near Saundersfoot after being cut off by the tide.

He climbed up to avoid the rising water at Perrys Point at 9pm last night and the Tenby lifeboat was launched.

Coastguards say wind, complete darkness, low cloud and vegetation prevented a helicopter rescue so rescue teams from Tenby and St Govans used specialist equipment to lower him to the lifeboat.

He was cold but none the worse for his ordeal.
