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.” ‌​‌‌​​​‌‍‌​‌​‌​​​
