Person stuck on Little Orme cliffs rescued by Llandudno Coastguard

A PERSON who was stuck on the cliffs on the Little Orme on Saturday (February 26) required the help of emergency services to be brought to safety.

The Llandudno Coastguard team was alerted to the event after North Wales Police (NWP) received reports a person shouting for help on the cliffs.

The casualty was found and brought to safety, with the Coastguard team returning to the area the following day to assess access points.

A Llandudno Coastguard statement yesterday said: “We were tasked yesterday (February 26), at the request of NWP, to reports of a person shouting for help on cliffs on the Little Orme.

“Officers on scene were already searching for the person and NWP’s Drone Unit deployed their drone to assist.

“Due to the potential of the person being stuck on a cliff, Rhyl Coastguard Rescue Team, Penmon Coastguard Rescue Team and RNLI Llandudno Lifeboat were also requested to support us.

“The person was located by police officers assisted by the drone and was safely brought back to the roadside.

“With the casualty now safe and well, all assets were stood down.

“This morning (February 27), the team headed out to assess access points around the area where we have had access issues in the past.

“We were able to find new routes into difficult to reach places and will now be able to respond much quicker to casualties at these locations.”
