A group of people had a lucky escape at Poppit Sands this morning after going into the water in the height of storm Ophelia.
The lifeboat crew at Cardigan was paged at 11:18am to a group of people in the water but the volunteer crew were stood down before the lifeboat launched.
The RNLI has since issued a warning about the weather.
Stormy conditions may be tempting to watch but big waves can easily knock you off your feet. The sea is far more powerful than you think and your chances of survival are slim if you are dragged into the swell. Our volunteer lifeboat crews will always launch to rescue those in danger at sea, but to launch into conditions like these could also put their lives at risk.
