VIDEO: Coast search girls found safe - in a restaurant!
TWO missing girls who sparked a major operation in Gower were eventually found - in a restaurant.
Horton and Port Eynon lifeboat was launched after a report that the teenagers had got into difficulty scrambling over rocks en route to Three Cliffs Bay from adjacent Tor Bay.
The volunteer lifeboat crew carried out a search of the area including Tor Bay, Pobbles and Three Cliffs Bay.
The search was also conducted up the river from Three Cliffs. An RAF Sea King helicopter from Portland, Dorset, helped as did two coastguard teams.
The missing duo later turned up at the Coalhouse restaurant at Oxwich Bay. It transpired they had headed there rather than trying to get around the coast to Three Cliffs.
The Horton and Port Eynon lifeboat launched on the previous evening to rescue two walkers trapped on rocks in Tor Bay.
Crowds have flocked to the beaches as South West Wales basks in sunshine, while more than two inches of rain struck parts of England yesterday.
Volunteer watch keepers at Worm's Head NCI lookout station and Rhossili cliff rescue team helped a woman who twisted her ankle while crossing the causeway shortly after 3pm on Sunday.
Sunshine and temperatures of 22C are forecast for Swansea today, with cloudier and cooler conditions tomorrow.
Lawrie Grove, Horton and Port Eynon lifeboat operations manager said: "It is important that you tell a responsible person where you are going and what time you expect to be returning and let them know if you are delayed."
