A young woman climber is in hospital with injuries after falling 30ft (9m) on to a rock close to the sea in Anglesey.

The incident happened on the Gogarth cliffs, near Holyhead.

She was spotted by a group of kayakers, who raised the alarm just before 14:00 BST on Saturday.

Coastguard rescue teams from Holyhead and Cemaes went to the scene, and the woman was winched aboard a coastguard helicopter.

The climber, in her late 20s or early 30s, was flown to hospital at Bangor.
