A search is resuming for a man missing on Bala Lake in Gwynedd after a kayak overturned.

The alarm was raised at about 17:30 BST on Saturday after another man and a child believed to be on the boat managed to reach the lake's shore.

An operation involving an RAF search helicopter and police and fire service units was called off as light failed.

The man and child on the shore were taken to Wrexham Maelor hospital overnight as a precaution.

Police said the search for the man resumed at 06:30 BST on Sunday but the fire service said it was not involved.

Bala Lake, or Llyn Tegid, is the largest natural lake in Wales, reaching 140ft (42m) in depth at points.
