Criccieth RNLI Lifeboats launch to person cut-off by the tide
At 9pm on the 16th of July 2019, volunteer Crewmembers from Criccieth’s RNLI Lifeboat Station launched both boats following reports of a person cut-off by the tide near Pont Briwet bridge.
As the Station’s Atlantic 85 Lifeboat stood-by, the inshore rescue boat transported the casualty from near the bridge’s gabions, ashore into the care of the waiting HM Coastguard team.
