Holyhead coastguards have rescued two people cut off by spring tides on Anglesey.

Moelfre Coastguard rescue team was launched, along with lifeboats, police helicopter and RAF rescue helicopter after a call at 11.23 GMT on Saturday.

The stranded people gave their location as Red Wharf Bay, but were found about 40 minutes later at Traeth Dulas.

A Holyhead Coastguard spokeswoman said they were experiencing spring tides at the moment, but the pair were unharmed.

She added the tides were particularly high and the pair had been "fortunate".
