Second launch of the day for Beaumaris Lifeboat volunteers
The volunteer crew members of the Beaumaris lifeboat had only left the station at 11.00 am having been launched at 8.53 am on service when at 11.59 am their pagers went off again.
The Beaumaris Inshore Atlantic 85 Lifeboat Annette Mary Liddington launched at 12.07 pm proceeding towards the training centre Indefatigable by the Britannia Bridge.
The U.K. coastguard at Holyhead had requested the volunteers to launch the lifeboat as they had received a report of a 25 foot motor cruiser in difficulties at that location.
Having arrived at the vessel the lifeboat arranged to tow the vessel to a place of safety.
The lifeboat returned to her station at Beaumaris by 1.45 pm being refuelled and prepared for her next service call by 2.20 pm.
