A Hollywood actor liked one Anglesey pub so much, he visited it three times this weekend.

The Hunger Games star had dinner on Friday night, a nightcap on Saturday ... followed by breakfast on Sunday.

Mr. Tucci was with his wife Felicity Blunt, sister of the Hollywood star Emily Blunt.

They enjoyed their meal so much they asked to meet head chef Hefin Roberts.

The Bull in Beaumaris won Best Restaurant in Wales in 2013.

The Muttropolitan's newest recruit - a robotic dog

North Wales Police has a new recruit – in the form of a robotic dog.

‘Celt’, the animatronic Golden Retriever is being used to teach young children on how to stay safe and how to behave around dogs.

Celt recently visited his first school on Anglesey with handler PC Gordon Topps from the Dog Section.

He was used to show pupils at Ysgol Niwbwrch they should not approach dogs when they are sleeping or eating, that they should ask dog owners if they can stroke their pets and that dogs who appear to be smiling may actually be displaying aggression.

All too often we hear that a child has been attacked by a dog, so we hope that this proactive approach will see a reduction in the number of children who become the victims of dog bites nationwide. This initiative aims to educate children from a young age about the right ways to act around animals in order to keep themselves safe.

It was great to see the pupils interact with Celt.

Many of the pupils have dogs as family pets so this was an ideal opportunity for them to be reminded on how to stay safe not only around their own pets but also unfamiliar dogs.

Celt responds positively to being stroked and even sniffs the hands of the children.

North Wales Police said the feedback has been really positive ... so paws for thought perhaps for other police forces.

It's certainly dif-fur-ent.
