A safety warning has been issued after beachgoers in Llandudno were caught out by the incoming tide.

The Llandudno inshore lifeboat was required to launch to the town’s West Shore at around 5.30pm on Thursday.

The crew of three were required to assist Llandudno Coastguard Rescue Team in ensuring the safety of three people, who appeared to be struggling with the tide.

The lifeboat helped to escort them back to the beach before issuing them with safety advice about the risks of rapid incoming tides and the use of inflatables.

An RNLI spokesperson from Llandudno said: “The sea at West Shore is potentially a perilous place to be, the public need to be aware of the incoming tides, rapidly disappearing sandbanks and channels of deep water.

“The RNLI are also reminding people that blow up toys and airbeds are designed for pools and not the sea where they can be easily swept out.”
