Busy weekend for Anglesey rescuers


Geraint Jones

A LIFEBOAT crew rescued three people who were stranded on an Anglesey beach.

The Beaumaris RNLI lifeboat was called out shortly before 8.45pm on Sunday to help the people, who were cut off by the rising tide at Penmon Point.

The group boarded the lifeboat and were taken to shore.

Beaumaris RNLI was then requested to a respond to a second rescue of a RIB with mechanical failure close to Penmon Bay. The lifeboat towed the RIB to Gallows Point.

A BOAT had to be towed to safety after its engine failed off the coast of Anglesey.

The small pleasure boat’s crew, two men from Denbigh, were fishing off Porthdafarch at around 3.40pm on Sunday when their engine failed.

The Trearddur Bay inshore lifeboat was scrambled to tow the vessel to shore.

AN ANGLESEY lifeboat team helped a man after his boat’s mast broke near Holyhead.

Holyhead Coastguard received a report at around 3.30pm on Sunday that a 21ft gaffer vessel had been “demasted” halfway between Holyhead breakwater and the headland.

A Holyhead lifeboat crewmember boarded the vessel to assist the man as the lifeboat escorted the boat into the town’s harbour.
