Plans for a £1.3m flood defence on Anglesey have been approved by planners.

The application could see the construction of a second flood wall at Beaumaris and an increase to the height of the existing wall between Gallows Point and Townsend Bridge.

The approval means the work will now be put out to tender.

An Anglesey council spokesman said: "A tender process will require detailed costs and timescales."
