National Grid's Anglesey energy and pylons plan prompts meeting

A public meeting is to call on the National Grid to change its preferred option of building pylons across Anglesey to improve north Wales' electricity connection.

Officials have been in talks for a over year about linking wind farms and the island's planned new nuclear power plant to the grid.

Residents prefer an option of an under-sea cable carrying power to Deeside.

Concerns will be raised with MPs at the meeting at Llanfairpwll on Friday.

BBC Wales environment correspondent Iolo ap Dafydd reports.
