Llandudno’s RNLI inshore lifeboat Dr Barbara Saunderson made way as quickly as possible to the scene of the emergency and proceeded to evacuate the casualty from the shore as daylight was rapidly fading.

The lifeboat then returned to the old Llandudno slipway nearby to handover the casualty to the Llandudno Coastguard Team.
