The body of a man has been found on the Anglesey coast following a search for a missing ferry crewman.

It was discovered by a member of the public at the shore near Ynys y Fydlyn at around 11am on Wednesday morning (7th October).

Chief Inspector Owain Llewellyn from North Wales Police said: ”We have not been able to formally identify the body yet but have informed the missing man’s family of today’s incident.”

A major Irish Sea search for a 44 year-old Polish man began on Monday night after the alarm was raised on an Irish Ferries crossing from Dublin to Holyhead.

But the search operation, involving coastguard and lifeboat crews, was called off on Tuesday afternoon without any sightings.

Police said the body was recovered from the beach by the Coastguard and RNLI and conveyed to Holyhead lifeboat station, before it was taken to Ysbyty Gwynedd in Bangor.
