VOLUNTEERS at Rhyl’s RNLI station have been called into action 12 times in the last six days.

From Tuesday, July 22 to Sunday, July 27 both the all-weather and inshore lifeboats were launched an average of twice a day after a varied degree of problems were called in.

Paul Frost, acting Coxswain, said: " We have had a very busy time and also have been pleased to see our promenade being utilised to the full with the weekend's Beach Fest.
“This has been hugely popular for the first time at Rhyl, and has proved what a valuable asset the beach and promenade are to the town.

“The volunteer crew of Rhyl RNLI were pleased to be a part of the weekend and hope this is the first of many such events."

The callouts ranged from inflatables getting blown out to sea to nine people being cut by incoming tide.

Saturday, July 25 proved to be the busiest day, with three swimmers in difficulty at different times of the afternoon.
