Trearddur Bay Lifeboat volunteers rescue 13 people
4 children and 9 adults were assisted off LLanddwyn Island by Trearddur Bay RNLI after being cut off by the tide.
One of the Charity’s Lifeboat crew, Sion Owen said, “myself and another crew member from our Atlantic 85 helped carry the stranded people onto the boat and then transported them back on to the mainland. They had sensibly decided to wait for help rather than risk wading through a flooding tide. We have quite large tides at the moment and you can get cut off quite quickly, the important thing is not to try your luck in these waters.”
3 more people were assisted by the coastguard at the scene and everyone was reported safe and well.
