Llandudno RNLI in night search operation
Llandudno's RNLI's inshore lifeboat was called out at 1.30am on Friday (7 April) to assist police and Llandudno coastguards searching for a male whom it was thought may have entered the sea from the resort's north shore.
Launching shortly afterwards, the volunteer lifeboat crew commenced a detailed visual search of the beach and inshore waters. In the event the man was located by other searchers on the shingle ashore and the RNLI crew was stood down.
By 3am the lifeboat had been rehoused and made ready for further service.
