LLANDUDNO'S all-weather lifeboat, William F Yates, was tasked to launch at 11.30am on Sunday (June 19).

The volunteer crew were called out to locate and assist a stranded vessel approximately five miles north of Llandudno.

The 36-foot sailing yacht, with six people on board, was soon located.

HM Coastguard then requested the lifeboat to tow the vessel to a safe mooring at Conwy Marina.

A RNLI crew member said: β€œIn these situations, we must thoroughly assess all possible risks to ensure everyone involved remain absolutely safe before securing a vessel and commencing a rescue.”
