We were shocked at the damage caused by Storm Emma to Holyhead Marina last week. Our thoughts are with everyone in the local community who has been affected.

We have been monitoring the situation closely, aware of the potential environmental impact this could have in the local area and beyond.

Any incident on this scale requires a coordinated approach, so we are fully supportive of the action plan being developed by the Holyhead Harbour Authority, the Maritime & Coastguard Agency (MCA), Isle of Anglesey County Council and Natural Resources Wales.

Whilst we know our dedicated and hard-working volunteers are keen to join in the clean-up effort, we are urging people to be mindful of official advice.

According to the official statement by the MCA members of the public are currently being asked to leave the clean-up operation to the experts and are further advised to avoid the area as there could potentially be some unsafe debris and material in the area.

We will be offering our support and assistance to the MCA and council in the hope that we can bring volunteers together to help clean-up activities once it is declared safe to do so.
