Holyhead honours Titanic's Hugh Roberts and Edward Brown

Two men from Anglesey who were crew members on the ill-fated Titanic are being honoured with a plaque in their hometown of Holyhead.

Hugh Roberts died when the stricken liner sank on its maiden voyage in 1912 but Edward Brown survived.

The 34-year-old, who was a steward in first class, helped load lifeboats but was nearly washed overboard by a wave.

Chris Dearden reports.
