During the visit, the Cabinet Secretary will meet representatives from the Marina, the Harbour Authority and NRW to hear about the clean up operation underway.

Over 80 vessels were damaged  and booms have been put in place to contain the diesel and debris to the perimeter of the dock. 

Speaking ahead of the visit, Cabinet Secretary said:  

“The images of the damage to Holyhead Marina were shocking and my thoughts are with all the businesses and individuals affected.  That is why I wanted to visit the site today to see first hand the damage caused and the impact on the local community and environment.

“The Marina, supported by the Harbour Authority and NRW, is working hard to assess the damage caused by the storms and undertake the clean up operation and I am being kept updated on the situation.  

“The damage has undoubtedly caused distress and has financial implications. We would encourage those affected, if they have not already done so, to get in touch with their insurers.”
