Llandudno inshore lifeboat sent to assist stranded vehicle.
During a training exercise Llandudno's inshore lifeboat Dr. Barbara Saunderson was tasked by HMC Holyhead to assist the Coastguard Team in an attempted recovery of a stranded vehicle.
RNLI crew member Luke Heritage explained: 'regrettably we could not achieve a recovery but did leave a marker buoy as a navigational aid for a submerged hazard.'
The lifeboat and crew of three were able to return to Llandudno to complete their exercise and recover to shore.
