Islanders on Anglesey welcome new royal baby

RAF colleagues of Prince William on Anglesey have filmed messages of congratulations to the royal couple on the birth of their first child.

They were just some of the messages from the island to the Duchess of Cambridge and the Duke, who has been a search and rescue helicopter pilot at RAF Valley since 2010.

The island has been the first home for William and Kate since their 2011 wedding.

Far from remaining hidden away in a rural retreat, the couple have popped up in unlikely locations for a future king and queen.

BBC Wales Today's Matthew Richards reports from Anglesey.
