Beaumaris lifeboat investigates a report of three youths trapped on rocks.
A request was received from the U.K. Coastguard at 4.58 pm on Thursday 25 July 2019 for the volunteer crew members of the R N L I Beaumaris lifeboat to launch and investigate a report of three youths trapped on rocks near the old quarry at Penmon.
The Beaumaris lifeboat Annette Mary Liddington was launched at 5.05 pm and made her way to the location once on scene they spotted the children sliding down from the cliff top.
Two of the lifeboat crew went ashore and escorted the children to the Penmon Coastguard Rescue Team who had also been tasked to the incident.
As the lifeboat could not assist further she returned to Beaumaris arriving at 5.40 pm and was prepared for her scheduled exercise launch at 6.15 pm.
