Waters 'rough' and 'choppy' in search for missing boy

Crews searching for a child missing off the coast of Anglesey have described weather conditions as 'rough'.

Both lifeboat stations were requested by HM Coastguard to launch this afternoon after they received reports of two people, a man and a boy, who were swept out to sea off Aberffraw.

Trearddur Bay volunteers launched the Atlantic 85 class lifeboat within three minutes of the pagers sounding at 1pm this afternoon, with Porthdinllaen all-weather lifeboat launching shortly after to assist in the search.

Weather conditions are rough, with very choppy seas.
