A man is in hospital after falling 30ft from a cliff at a beach near Trearddur Bay.

Emergency services, including the Wales Air Ambulance, were called out to Porth-y-Post at just after 5pm on Friday evening.

The RNLI lifeboat from Trearddur Bay and two coastguard rescue teams from Holyhead and Cemaes Bay were also involved in the rescue.

The man in his forties, who was staying at a nearby caravan site, was airlifted to Ysbyty Gwynedd in Bangor with head and chest injuries.

The RNLI said a member of the public had reportedly been led to the incident by the man’s dog, before calling out emergency services. It was the second cliff fall rescue involving the Trearddur Bay crew this year.

Lifeboat volunteer Matt Hannaby added: ”The casualty was in a lot of pain however he didn’t appear to have any life-threatening injuries and we managed to get him off to hospital quite quickly.”
