RAF helicopter makes emergency landing near Bethesda

An RAF Sea King helicopter had to make an emergency landing near Bethesda, Gwynedd, after a mechanical problem.

The aircraft, which is usually based at RAF Valley on Anglesey, landed near playing fields at Rachub on Thursday evening.

Two staff from Valley guarded the helicopter overnight as it was too dark to carry out repairs.

Engineers are on site to look into the problem which forced the helicopter to land.
