22/2/2016. 7.25pm Both the inshore and all-weather lifeboats were launched to reports of a flashing light about 300 metres out from the beach by ASDA Kinmel Bay. The Rhyl coastguard team were also alerted. On arriving in the area, the informant reported the boats were very near to the light, and the only object in the area the crews could see was the fairway buoy marking the approach into Rhyl harbour. The lifeboats went alongside the buoy and the informant confirmed that this was the light they had seen. The wind was Northerly gusting up to force 7 with fairly large waves, and so the buoy may have been hidden by the waves from shore at certain periods. As all was well and there was nothing else in the area, all units were stood down, the lifeboats returning to station at 9pm.
