Efforts to refloat a ship that carries Airbus wings from North Wales to France have been put back for another week.

The Ciudad de Cadiz became stranded on a sandbank on Wednesday, just outside the Port of Mostyn.

"Recent high tides have been lower than predicted so a decision has been taken to postpone refloating the vessel until next Saturday 9th February" said an Airbus spokesperson.

"The vessel remains in a secure and safe position on the sand bank and there is no marine pollution"
