Lifeboat launched after four female swimmers get into difficulties at Fenit

Two female swimmers who got into difficulties while swimming at Fenit last night, had to be rescued by Fenit Inshore Lifeboat.

Valentia Coastguard received a call shortly before 10 o’clock to say that four swimmers were in difficulty at Fenit Harbour.

The Inshore Lifeboat was immediately launched and brought two of the women to safety – the other two had managed to get to shore.

A spokesman for Valentia Coastguard says the women were cold and shaken, but did not require medical attention.
