Cabin Cruiser fire off Aberystwyth - VIDEO

Both lifeboats were launched to a cabin cruiser on fire approx 1 mile west of Castle point, with 1 person on board. The casualty was quickly taken off the boat and returned to shore where an ambulance was waiting to take him to hospital for assessment.

With the boat still well ablaze, there was a fear that gas and other items on board the boat could cause an explosion so an exclusion zone was set up around the boat to ensure no one got close either on land or sea. The police closed parts of the prom whilst the two lifeboats were placed half a mile either side of the burning vessel to keep people and other vessels away from the scene and safe.
