A fisherman has been airlifted to hospital after suffering a head injury at sea.

The crewman on board a Cornish scallop trawler was 15 miles (24 km) north west of Holyhead when the alarm was raised at 19:10 BST on Thursday.

Holyhead coastguards scrambled an RAF Sea King from Valley on Anglesey and the fisherman was flown to Glan Clwyd hospital in Bodelwyddan.

The extent of his injuries is not known.
