Two rescued by Llandudno RNLI volunteers

Lifeboats News Release

Llandudno RNLI inshore lifeboat was launched at about 5.30pm on Saturday (30 July) following reports that two people had been cut off by the incoming tide at the foot of precipitous cliffs on the Little Orme at the extremity of Llandudno bay.

Arriving on scene within minutes, the lifeboat crew took the two - males in their mid-20s and visitors to Llandudno - into the lifeboat and landed them safely, still dry-shod and none the worse for their experience at the resort's Sailing Club slipway.
