Floods: Helicopter drops stone bags to stop floods in Llanbedr

A helicopter has been dropping giant bags of slate in Llanbedr, in Wales, to help stop the high tide from flooding the nearby area.

A huge chunk of the coast was washed away in the storms in early January which means every day homes and farmland are flooded as the tide sweeps in.

Matthew Richards reports.
