Mountain rescue teams are searching in the Snowdonia area of Wales for a helicopter that went missing with 5 people on board.

Radar contact was lost with the helicopter that was en route to Dublin from Milton Keynes at around 4 o’clock yesterday afternoon.

An extensive air and sea search was launched in the Irish Sea – however this has now been called off due to low lying cloud and poor visibility.


Declan Geoghegan from the Irish Coast Guard says North Wales Police has now taken over the operation.
