The Beaumaris Inshore Atlantic 85 Lifeboat Annette Mary Liddington with her volunteer crew launched at 8.14 pm and proceeded towards the last reported location of the drifting vessel.

After a short search the volunteer lifeboat crew located and boarded the six metre motor boat, it was soon apparent that no one had been aboard the vessel which had a severed mooring line.

The lifeboat then took the craft in an alongside tow to Port Penrhyn and with the assistance of a crew member from another vessel berthed the speedboat alongside said boat.

The lifeboat then departed to return to her station arriving at 8.46 pm being refuelled and made ready for her next service by 9.18 pm.

Key facts about the RNLI

The Royal National Lifeboat Institution is the charity that saves lives at sea. Our volunteers provide a 24-hour search and rescue service in the United Kingdom and Ireland from 238 lifeboat stations, including four along the River Thames and inland lifeboat stations at Loch Ness, Lough Derg, Enniskillen, Carrybridge and Lough Ree. Additionally the RNLI has more than 1,000 lifeguards on over 240 beaches around the UK and operates a specialist flood rescue team, which can respond anywhere across the UK and Ireland when inland flooding puts lives at risk.

The RNLI relies on public donations and legacies to maintain its rescue service. As a charity it is separate from, but works alongside, government-controlled and funded coastguard services. Since the RNLI was founded in 1824 our lifeboat crews and lifeguards have saved at least 140,000 lives. Volunteers make up 95% of the charity, including 4,600 volunteer lifeboat crew members and 3,000 volunteer shore crew. Additionally, tens of thousands of other dedicated volunteers raise funds and awareness, give safety advice, and help in our museums, shops and offices.
