Porthcawl RNLI crew ‘repeatedly dazzled’ by laser in ‘deliberate act’

Members of the RNLI team had been out on a search mission on the evening of Sunday 6 January. The crew have since reported the incident to the UK coastguard.

Aileen Jones from Porthcawl RNLI said: “Our volunteer lifeboat crews risk their lives to save others at sea and a deliberate act like this makes their job more difficult and puts them at increased risk.”

She added: “Visibility was poor because it was dark and the laser light would have seriously affected the night vision of the crew.’
