Strong winds prevented the long awaited return of boats docking at the end of Llandudno Pier following the revamp of its landing stage.

Council officials cancelled Wednesday's opening ceremony after a paddle steamer sailed yards from the pier before being forced to turn away.

About 1,000 people were left disappointed as they had been hoping to take a short cruise.

Over £300,000 has been spent repairing the landing stage.

Roger Pinney reports.
