Second call in a week for Beaumaris lifeboat to persons cut off by the tide.
Due to imminent crew assessments a training exercise had been authorised. However this was interrupted when at 7.10 pm the U. K Coastguard requested the lifeboat to assist Bangor Mobile Coastguard Rescue Team in relation to a report of two people waist deep in the water and cut off by the tide.
The Beaumaris lifeboat Annette Mary Liddington immediately diverted to the reported location by Abergwyngregyn however whilst in transit to the area the lifeboat was advised her services would not be required as the matter had been resolved.
Leaving the Bangor Mobile Coastguard Team to follow up on the report the lifeboat crew continued with their exercise before returning to station later in the evening.
