A fisherman has died after receiving injuries while working alone on his boat off the Llyn peninsula in Gwynedd.

An RNLI lifeboat from Porthdinllaen and the RAF Valley rescue helicopter were called out on Sunday at 03:15 BST.

The man was named as Gareth Jones of Morfa Nefyn by the north Wales coroner on Monday morning and a post-mortem examination is being carried out.

The family has been informed and the Marine Accident Investigation Branch is working with North Wales Police to establish what happened.

The incident is not believed to be suspicious, a police spokesperson said.
