A MIDNIGHT boat fire in Neyland saw emergency services work together in the dark to ensure no-one was hurt.

At 12.13am on Tuesday (April 24), fire crews from Pembroke Dock and Milford Haven were called to Brunel Quay.

A fishing boat was adrift on the water under the Cleddau Bridge, and well alight.

Angle RNLI’s all-weather lifeboat was launched shortly after, with the volunteer crew carrying out a shoreline search along with the Coastguard to determine there was nobody involved.

Working with Milford Haven Port Authority and the RNLI, fire service boats were deployed to extinguish and secure the seven-metre vessel.

With the fire put out, crews started to tow the empty vessel back to Neyland.

A smaller second fire ignited during the journey back to shore, but RNLI crew used a pump to extinguish the blaze.

Having brought the vessel alongside the pontoon, firefighters dampened down the vessel, using a hose reel jet and a thermal imaging camera, before leaving the incident at 3.13am.
