Memorial event for Lewis Darroch and Callum Mackay

Two friends who drowned off the Anglesey coast are to be remembered a year after they died.

Lewis Darroch, 22, had tried to save his friend Callum Mackay, 22, who had got into difficulties while swimming at Cable Bay on the island.

But neither could be saved during the incident on 24 August 2011.

Laurence Cuthbertson has organised a memorial event on Saturday at the Belle Vue public house, Bangor to celebrate the life of his friends.

He spoke to Kayley Thomas on BBC Radio Wales about his memories of a year ago.
