Paddle steamer Llandudno docking halted by strong winds

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.
