Two people were rescued after their catamaran capsized off the north Wales coast on Saturday.

A member of the public alerted the coastguard at about 14:30 BST after seeing the incident unfold from the promenade at Llanfairfechan, Conwy county.

Beaumaris RNLI lifeboat, coastguard teams from Bangor and Llandudno and a rescue helicopter all responded.

The casualties were brought back to the slip and did not require any treatment.

The catamaran was also towed back to shore.
