Mayday Sparks Search At Llandudno

UK Coastguard launched an air and sea search after a Mayday call was heard late on Friday night near Llandudno in North Wales.

Holyhead Coastguard heard a spoken radio Mayday call at 10.45pm on Friday and coordinated a search of the sea and coast around Llandudno involving two Coastguard rescue helicopters and four lifeboats. Three Coastguard rescue teams searched the shoreline.

Rescue units which took part in the search were Coastguard rescue teams from Llandudno, Penmon and Rhyl, RNLI lifeboats from Llandudno, Beaumaris, Conwy and Rhyl.  The Coastguard rescue helicopter from Caernarfon was joined in the search by the Coastguard rescue helicopter based at Prestwick.

Nothing has been found despite an intensive search of the area overnight.  The search at sea has been suspended.
