Concern at helicopter search and rescue move plans

Helicopter search and rescue will be moved to Caernarfon from Anglesey after an US-based firm won a 10-year contract to run the service from 2015.

A new base will also be set up at St Athan in the Vale of Glamorgan by the Bristow Group.

The £1.6bn deal ends 70 years of search and rescue from the RAF and Royal Navy which some fear will have far reaching consequences for Anglesey.

Roger Pinney reports.
