Llandudno RNLI crews in night search operation
Llandudno RNLI inshore lifeboat was called out by Holyhead Coastguard at 2:15am this morning (2 February) to assist in a search operation resulting from the discovery of items of clothing on the resort's north shore.
The lifeboat crew carried out a thorough search of the shoreline and waters of the bay whilst a number of their volunteer RNLI colleagues assisted police and Llandudno coastguards searching ashore.
Nothing was found and the RNLI personnel were stood down after just over an hour, the lifeboat returning to station shortly afterwards.

Key facts about the RNLI
The Royal National Lifeboat Institution is the charity that saves lives at sea. Our volunteers provide a 24-hour search and rescue service in the United Kingdom and Ireland from 238 lifeboat stations, including four along the River Thames and inland lifeboat stations at Loch Ness, Lough Derg, Enniskillen and Lough Ree. Additionally the RNLI has more than 1,000 lifeguards on over 240 beaches around the UK and operates a specialist flood rescue team, which can respond anywhere across the UK and Ireland when inland flooding puts lives at risk.
The RNLI relies on public donations and legacies to maintain its rescue service. As a charity it is separate from, but works alongside, government-controlled and funded coastguard services. Since the RNLI was founded in 1824 our lifeboat crews and lifeguards have saved at least 140,000 lives. Volunteers make up 95% of the charity, including 4,600 volunteer lifeboat crew members and 3,000 volunteer shore crew. Additionally, tens of thousands of other dedicated volunteers raise funds and awareness, give safety advice, and help in our museums, shops and offices.
