Three rescued from boat taking on water near Anglesey

Three people have been rescued from a boat which had started to take on water off the Anglesey coast on Friday.

The 56ft (17.1m) converted trawler was 6 miles (10 km) west of South Stack when the crew radioed coastguards at 07:00 BST.

Holyhead coastguards said a pump on board the boat was unable to cope with the water coming in.

The RNLI lifeboat crew placed a pump and towed the vessel to Holyhead.
