Cargo ship hits rocks off Conwy coast


Seven crew members have been rescued from a stricken cargo ship that ran aground off the Conwy coast in rough seas.

Two lifeboats and a helicopter were called at 20:30 BST after the ship hit a rock near a quarry jetty at Llanddulas, near Colwyn Bay.

It is believed the ship is a coaster, which uses the jetty to load limestone.
