Plaid Cymru councillor Steffan Wiliam says he is 'very concerned' at news that a 14-year-old girl, last seen in waters off Barry Island, is missing.
Mr William lives on Barry Island and represents the area for the Vale of Glamorgan Council.
Our stretch of coast has the world's second highest tidal range, second only to the Bay of Fundy.
The main issue is that Whitmore Bay is a pocket shape. You have to be careful but it is generally very safe, particularly now we have lifeguards.
I am very concerned to hear that this girl has gone missing. I am the parent of three kids myself and it is awful to hear news like this.
