A 58-year-old man was winched aboard an RAF rescue helicopter yesterday afternoon after suffering a spinal injury following a slip on board a motor cruiser off Puffin Island.

Hundreds of holidaymakers and onlookers watched on as an insure lifeboat from Beaumaris was launched to bring the man back to shore.

A Sea King helicopter from Valley was then called and the man was airlifted to Ysbyty Gwynedd.
