Tidal energy developer Minesto has been given a marine licence to install a new kind of power plant off the coast of Anglesey.
The scheme will see an experimental 0.5MW 'Deep Green' device installed below the water, with a foundation at the seabed and buoy on the surface.
The firm says this will demonstrate and prove the technology, with potential to expand it into a larger 'tidal energy array'.
North Wales Fire and Rescue Service says crews have been at a mountain fire in the area of Panorama Walk, Llangollen, since Sunday.
It carried out an assessment last night and says because of location of the fire, a decision has been made to maintain a watching brief and allow the fire to burn.
It says it is aware of the situation and the concern of those who might see the fire, however, arrangements have been made to re-attend in daylight hours.
The four seals had all been rescued separately across Wales over the last few months and were given round the clock care and rehabilitation at an RSPCA centre.
Over the winter months, the RSPCA says, it receives a number of calls from members of the public about stranded seal pups. However, not all lone seal pups have been abandoned. RSPCA Cymru advises that if you find a seal pup that looks fit and healthy, and doesn’t show any signs of distress, it is best to monitor it from a safe distance for 24 hours.
Please do not touch seal pups (they can give a nasty bite) and keep dogs and other animals away from them.
This is the best part of being a member of the RSPCA inspectorate - seeing animals back into their natural habitat. I am grateful to Welsh Marine Life Rescue for their help in releasing these seals back into the sea.
We do get a number of calls about abandoned seal pups and it’s great that we are able to rescue them, give them the care they need and get them back out into the sea. I would like to remind members of public to follow our advice about leaving wild animals alone, for 24-hours, before contacting us, as human presence may hinder rather than help.
Conservation experts are calling for a deposit return scheme, where you get money back for returning used bottles, cans and containers.Read the full story ›

Natural Resources Wales says it is dealing with a major pollution incident affecting the River Honddu in the Brecon Beacons.
A lagoon containing 450,000 litres of slurry leaked into a tributary and Natural Resources Wales says both the tributary and the river itself have been affected. Environment officers are assessing whether there is any impact on the River Monnow and the Wye.
Protecting nature in Wales is our biggest priority and we have been carrying out pollution prevention works to minimise the impact of this incident since this morning.
Due to the possible effects downstream we have worked closely with our colleagues in the Environment Agency monitoring the situation and putting plans in place for the ongoing management of this incident.
Anyone who sees signs of pollution is asked to contact Natural Resources Wales on 03000 65 3000.
