LIFESAVERS were called to help a woman that had fallen under the stone-arched Pen-y-Clip viaduct.

Along with Bangor Coastguard Rescue Team, Llandudno Coastguard were called on Wednesday, August 5 to assist the injured female.

A spokesperson for the Llandudno team said: "Both teams joined together to send a casualty care and stretcher party to the injured casualty.

"The teams were faced with extremely strong winds, an incoming tide and uneven and slippery rocks to reach the casualty.

"Once at the casualty's side, the female was given casualty care and escorted safely to Llanfairfechan where she made her own way to hospital."

This was the third callout for the coastguard rescue team this month after a busy July involving 17 incidents.
