A man has been airlifted to hospital after falling while coasteering on Anglesey.

A Sea King helicopter from RAF Valley picked up the man in his 20s, from Stirling, Scotland, from rocks at Gogarth Bay near Holyhead on Sunday.

Coasteering is a sport which combines cliff climbing with jumping into the sea and swimming.

The injured man was flown to Ysbyty Gwynedd hospital, Bangor, where he was treated for a broken leg.
