One kayaker was airlifted to hospital and another taken to shore by a lifeboat crew after getting into difficulty off the Gwynedd coast.

The alarm was raised by a third person on-shore at Trefor, Caernarfon, on Saturday at 13:05 BST.

A helicopter rescue crew from RAF Valley at Anglesey rescued one of the kayakers who had become exhausted.

Holyhead Coastguard said in difficult conditions the kayaks had been taken too far from shore.
