Evening recovery of Beaumaris Lifeboat

The volunteer crew of the Beaumaris Inshore Atlantic 85 Lifeboat Annette Mary Liddington launched the lifeboat at 10.52 pm, in addition both the Llandwrog and Bangor Mobile Coastguard Rescue Teams together with north Wales Police and Welsh Ambulance service deployed to the scene.

In this instance the lone female was located ashore and taken by Ambulance to Hospital. As a consequence the service of the lifeboat was not required on this occasion.

This enabled the lifeboat to return to her station at 11.25 pm being refuelled and made ready for her next service by 11.55 pm.
