A fire service spokesperson said they received reports of the incident shortly before 11.30am this morning.

They confirmed one light small aircraft, which ITV Cymru Wales understands had come from Blackpool, had flipped onto its roof during the incident.

Over 30 crew members attended the scene, with special appliances sent from Holyhead, Caernarfon, Llanberis and Pwllheli and off-road vehicles dispatched from Porthmadog and Llangefni.
