Man dies after falling from cliff in north Wales

A 22-year-old man has died and another is missing after they both fell from a cliff in North Wales.

The first was airlifted to hospital but pronounced dead on arrival. Emergency services are searching the sea in Cable Bay for the second man.

Alf Pritchard from the Trearddur Bay Lifeboat told the BBC that the heavy seas made the search very difficult.

Eyewitness Leanne Sloane recalls seeing the group before the incident occurred.

Sgt Manon Owen explained to the BBC that this part of the coast can be quite treacherous.

Roger Pinney reports.
