Coastguards have warned people to be properly prepared at sea after a 76-year-old man was rescued when his kayak capsized.

Holyhead coastguard said he was ill-equipped for his fishing trip off Shell Island, Gwynedd, on Saturday.

He was taken ashore and treated by paramedics.

The coastguard said the fisherman had tried to use an anchor for his kayak which had caused him to capsize.
