Llandudno inshore lifeboat preparing to launch on Bank Holiday Monday

The person involved in the incident had become separated from his jet ski and had been in the water for some time. The Llandudno Coastguard Team were soon on scene and were able to establish that another jet skier had come to the aid of the casualty who had been reunited with the jet ski, and safely returned to Porth Eirias.

The Llandudno inshore lifeboat with three volunteer crew members on board was therefore stood down by the Coastguard as they arrived on scene at Rhos Point.
