Walker given casualty care after slipping and sustaining ankle injury on Llandudno’s Great Orme

A PERSON slipped on wet grass and sustained an ankle injury.

Llandudno Coastguard and Bangor Coastguard Rescue Team were tasked to the Great Orme in Llandudno to assist the casualty.

Llandudno Coastguard posted on Facebook on December 28: “We provided casualty care and packaged the casualty into our stretcher before carrying them down the slope and into a waiting ambulance.

“Although in this case the casualty was a well equipped and experienced walker, accidents can still happen.

“Our advice to ensure that your trip to the coast is both safe and fun is: make sure you check the weather and tides before heading out, wear appropriate footwear and clothing for your activity, know the sea conditions and stick to coastal paths. Also, make sure you tell someone where you are going and when you will be back.”

Anyone who gets into difficulty should telephone 999 and ask for the Coastguard.
