North Wales Police have confirmed that the bodies of two men have been recovered from the sea off the Anglesey coast.

The bodies have not been formally identified, but the discovery follows a search for two climbers, a 48 year old man from Sussex and a 21 year old man from Hampshire, who had been climbing in the North Stack area of Holyhead yesterday.

They were reported missing around 10.15pm last night. A search operation involving RAF 22 Squadron, the Coastguard and North Wales Police was halted at 1am this morning and resumed at first light.

The bodies were located in the sea shortly after 7.15am today. The North West Wales Coroner will be informed.
