A family of six were rescued from a yacht which had become adrift off the Pembrokeshire coast in the early hours of Thursday.

Rescue teams were alerted just after midnight that the boat was in trouble in gale force winds near Milford Haven.

A lifeboat was launched and rescued those on board, including two children.

No-one was injured and the boat was abandoned on Lindsway Bay.
