North West Wales

Hay bale pulled ashore by lifeboat off Anglesey

A hay bale found floating in the sea off the north Wales coast has been towed to shore by a lifeboat.

The bale was spotted in the water near Cemaes Bay in Anglesey on Sunday and was considered a danger to vessels.

Lifeboat crews from Holyhead towed the one-tonne bale inshore before four canoeists and coastguards dragged it on to the beach.

Coastguards, who originally called the circular-shaped bale a haystack, believe it was thrown into the sea.
