Anglesey Land & Lakes leisure park approved on second vote

Controversial plans for an 800-lodge resort at a country park on Anglesey have been approved, after initially being rejected last month.

There were shouts and cheers as developer Land & Lakes had its proposal passed by five votes to three.

The company claims its "quality destination" in Holyhead will create 600 jobs.

A special planning meeting took place in Llangefni because last month's refusal went against officers' advice.

Protesters both for and against the project gathered outside the council offices before the meeting began.
