Man in hospital after trying to save son off Anglesey

A 53-year-old man has been taken to hospital after getting into difficulty in the sea near Trearddur Bay on Anglesey.

It is believed he had entered the water because his 13-year-old son was struggling in the sea at Silver Bay.

The boy was able to swim to shore unaided, but his father got into difficulties.

He was helped by members of the public, along with Holyhead coastguard and the Trearddur Bay lifeboat.
