A man's been rescued at Holyhead Port after being found clinging to a rope.

The town's inshore lifeboat and coastguards went to his aid after a member of the RNLI, heard shouts for help at around 4.30am.

Rescuers said the man, in his late 20s and believed to be from Manchester was 'extremely lucky.'

A coastguard spokesman said, "There is no indication as to how he got into the water and what he was doing in the secure port area."

He was rescued by the lifeboat and taken to Bangor hospital suffering with suspected hypothermia.
