A historic Gwynedd mansion undergoing a multi-million renovation has been placed into receivership.

Plas Glynllifon, near Caernarfon, was bought by Paul and Rowena Williams who hoped to turn it into a luxury hotel.

When they took it over in 2016, much of the 102-room property was semi-derelict, after the collapse of a previous wedding venue venture in 2013.

Plas Glynllifon Limited appointed a receiver and a manager on Wednesday, according to Companies House.

The company underwent changes to its management last year when Paul Williams stepped down.
