A kayaker has been rescued by the Llandudno RNLI.

The casualty was being closely observed by Llandudno Coastguard before the RNLI Inshore Lifeboat launched and proceeded to the kayak’s position.

The crew found that the lone occupant was at anchor and fishing but drifting to the East due to the poor conditions on scene that were deteriorating quickly.

After a brief discussion it was decided that the safest option was for the kayaker to make his way ashore with the Inshore Lifeboat following closely behind in case of any issues.

The casualty managed to make his way back to the beach where he was assisted by Lifeboat crew members in drysuits and lifejackets. He was handed over to Llandudno Coastguard where safety advice was given.
