Kinmel Bay beach group lost in fog found safe

Three people became lost in dense fog on a beach for three hours at nearby Kinmel Bay.

The group who were carrying torches had been looking for fishing bait when they became disoriented.

They called Holyhead Coastguard for assistance at about 04:30 GMT on Friday and the local team was sent to locate them.

However, they managed to find their own way to a nearby a car park about 30 minutes later.

"The fog can be quite disorienting especially if the tide is out and you are on a wide, flat beach," said a coastguard spokesman. "We do get this quite a bit when it's foggy."
