Horses who swam towards Llandudno rescued by Coastguard

A PAIR of horses were brought to safety after swimming from Conwy Morfa to Llandudno.

This was just part of a busy week for the Llandudno Coastal Rescue Team, who rescued the horses, which saw seven call-outs and three training sessions.

Llandudno Coastguard said: “The horses had thrown their riders on the beach at Conwy Morfa, swam across the river towards Llandudno and then made their way along the beach almost to the gun sites.

“Once the horses had calmed down, we were able to restrain them and to bring the horses back to safety.

“If you become aware of any dangerous situations or become lost or injured on the coast, phone 999 and ask for the Coastguard.”
