Helicopter airlifts Llanbedr sea defence sandbags

A helicopter is ferrying in tonnes of slate to plug a hole in Wales' storm-damaged coast in a race against time, amid concerns of a new storm surge.
About 1,000 acres (400 hectares) of farm land at Llanbedr, Gwynedd, have flooded twice a day since a 50m (160ft) breach was punched in sea defences.
One-tonne bags are being used as sandbags to create a temporary dam ahead of more high tides this weekend.
