RAF footage of rescue operation off north Wales coast

An air-and-sea search for five men missing from a sunken cargo carrier off the coast of north Wales has been called off for the night.

Holyhead coastguard said a decision would be made later whether to resume the Irish Sea search for the crew members on Monday morning.

Two crew of the Swanland were rescued by helicopter early on Sunday. A third man's body was found later.

Prince William was co-pilot of the first rescue helicopter on the scene.
