Boat suffering engine failure at Conwy’s Beacons Jetty brought to safety

A VESSEL suffering engine failure had to be rescued by lifesavers.

Llandudno Coastguard were tasked on Saturday night to the Beacons Jetty in Conwy. Conwy Lifeboat also attended.

A spokesperson from the coastguard team said: “The casualty vessel was being towed by another vessel who was in the area and safely negotiated the river, escorted by the lifeboat, to bring the casualty vessel alongside the Beacons Jetty safely.

“Once secure, we ensured the crew were safe on board and had everything they needed before we were stood down.”
