Haverfordwest: Toddler left at nursery found wandering on road

Published

on

CONCERNS have been raised after a toddler from a Haverfordwest nursery managed to escape and wander onto the nearby busy main road.

The toddler, a girl aged two, slipped out while attending Tots Pre-School Nursery in Haverfordwest at around midday on Monday (Jan 28).

Dyfed-Powys Police have confirmed they attended the Nursery at around 12.10pm following reports that a child had been unattended in the street.

The officers, a spokesperson said, ensured the safety of the child and the relevant authorities have been notified of the incident.

The girl was spotted wandering alone, with no coat on and wearing just socks on a pavement.

A female motorist travelling on the A487 saw the girl and immediately pulled over to assist her.

Another male passerby had also noticed the girl and they quickly realised she must have come from the local nursery.

The nursery have said they regret the incident and are liaising with the relevant authorities and will be implementing new procedures to ensure this isolated incident does not happen again.

A spokesperson for the nursery said: “Strict new measures were put in place immediately and structural alterations to the nursery will be made as soon as possible to ensure that an incident of this type can never happen again.

“I have and will continue to speak to all parents explaining what has happened in person.

“I contacted our governing body whose representatives came the next day and we are working with them regarding this incident.

“I have thanked the parents of the child involved for their understanding of the situation and in their trust in allowing us to continue caring for their child.”

The governing body of all welsh childcare and nursery setting CIW (Care Inspectorate Wales) has said: “CIW are aware of the incident at Tots Nursery, and are liaising with Pembrokeshire Council and investigating further.

“We cannot comment on specific issues at this time, but can assure you that we are looking into the concerns raised.”

The child will continue to attend the nursery.

The Fourcroft Hotel in Tenby how faces an uncertain future. It’s parent company Northern Powerhouse Developments reportedly suffered a £14m operational loss last year.

“The Fourcroft will be the sister hotel to the Llandudno Bay Hotel and Spa and part of the group’s premier hotel collection.

“We are keen to compliment the local businesses and hope to be part of the future success of Tenby and the surrounding areas.”

NPD was founded by Gavin Woodhouse to focus on investment in the leisure and tourism industry.

According to ITV News, at the High Court hearing, Justice Alastair Norris was told that Woodhouse had been withdrawing tens of thousands of pounds from a bank account he had kept secret from administrators.

Coastguard call-out after missing cliff climbers fears

Published

on

EMERGENCY services were called to the Stack Rocks area on Thursday August 15, following concerns for the safety of two climbers.

The emergency services were called following fears over the safety of some climbers when climbing gear had been found at the top of the cliff near Bullslaughter Bay, with the owners nowhere to be seen.

At 9.11pm, Tenby Coastguard rescue team, St Govan coastguard rescue team, Tenby Lifeboats RNLI ALB, Angle Lifeboat RNLI ALB and Coastguard rescue helicopter 187 were called to search for possible missing persons in the vicinity of Stack rocks.

Tenby’s RNLI all-weather lifeboat was launched just after 9pm and made best speed towards the scene, 10 miles west of Tenby, while Tenby and St Govans Coastguard rescue teams and Coastguard rescue helicopter 187 also made their way.

An RNLI spokesman said: “Once on scene, the volunteer crew began their search from Stackpole Head towards Bullslaughter Bay.

“With darkness fast approaching, it was decided to launch Angle all-weather lifeboat so that the search for anyone in difficulty could be widened.

“Sometime later, the helicopter spotted some climbers and directed Angle lifeboat to their position, and, while speaking to them, they confirmed it was their climbing gear and that they were in no difficulty.

“All units stood down and returned to their respective stations, with Tenby lifeboat arriving back on station at about 12.15am.”

H M Coastguard Tenby, posting on Facebook, added: “Coastguard and RNLI were quickly on the scene with the Coastguard officers searching from land along the coastline and RNLI lifeboats commencing a water search.

“Once Coastguard rescue helicopter 187 arrived on scene they managed to quickly locate two climbers using FLIR [Forward-Looking Infra-Red].

“Angle RNLI was then directed to the persons and made contact with the climbers and confirmed that the equipment found belonged to them and that they did not require assistance.”
