A HUNDRED people were stopped from being cut off from the tide in Llandudno.

Llandudno Coastguard said its officers attended West Shore on Sunday to warn people they were at risk of becoming stranded by the incoming tide.

The officers walked three miles in "scorching heat" while wearing full PPE to help beachgoers, the Coastguard said.

"It's been a busy couple of days for us, along with colleagues around the coast," Llandudno Coastguard said.

"Yesterday, the team were at West Shore where we prevented over 100 people from being cut off by the rapidly incoming tide.

"Each Coastguard Rescue Officer walked around 3 miles in full PPE and in the scorching heat to assist people off the banks.

"Most people were unaware the danger they were in and were happy to take our advice, however we also received some abuse from a small number of people.

"The final team member off the banks had seconds to spare before being being cut off themselves; we don't do it for fun, we are there to keep you safe, please listen to the instructions of our Coastguard Rescue Officers if approached."

Another incident involved Llandudno Coastguard and Conwy RNLI after two people had become cut off by the tide and were being "pulled out to sea".

"We were tasked, along with Conwy Lifeboat, to two people who had been cut off and had entered the water and were now rapidly being pulled out to sea," the Coastguard said.

"They were rescued with only seconds to spare by the skilled crew of Conwy Lifeboat and brought back to shore where casualty care was provided by us and the paramedic aboard coastguard rescue helicopter 936.

"Please, if visiting the coast, check the tide times and follow the instructions provided on warning signs or by staff or volunteers who are trying to keep you safe.

"If you do get into difficulty, do not attempt to rescue yourself, dial 999 and ask for the coastguard."
