A fisherman has been airlifted to hospital with second degree burns after suffering an injury while on a boat off the west Wales coast.

The fishing trawler got into difficulty in the Irish Sea off St David's Head in Pembrokeshire on Monday morning.

A lifeboat crew from St David's and a Coastguard helicopter arrived at the scene at about 11:45 BST and a man was airlifted to Morriston Hospital in Swansea with second-degree burns.

Nobody else on board was injured.
