Midnight call for Holyhead RNLI

Lifeboats News Release

Both Holyhead lifeboats were launched late on Saturday, (November 25th) shortly before midnight, after reports of a possible despondent person in the breakwater area.

The inshore D-class lifeboat launched first, and was shortly joined by the all-weather lifeboat Christopher Pearce.

While the area was being searched by both lifeboats, information was received that the person in question was found safe and well elsewhere by North Wales Police.

The lifeboats returned to the station just after 00.30am Sunday.
