A ‘police incident’ which saw helicopters, lifeboats and coastguard rescue teams scrambled to Talacre on Friday night came to a “safe conclusion.”

There were reports of a large emergency service operation taking place within the Point of Ayr Nature Reserve which backs on to car parks and the Lighthouse Pub.

Two RNLI lifeboats from Rhyl were launched just before 10pm they were joined by the RNLI hovercraft from Hoylake.

The Coastguard helicopter left the area at around 11.45pm, the RNLI lifeboats and hovercraft remained close by for a while longer.

In an update this morning, Flint Coastguard has said its officers were “tasked to assist North Wales Police with an incident near Talacre beach last night.”
