A RESCUE operation has been launched following reports of a plane crash off Anglesey, Wales. The aircraft is said to have gone down near the uninhabited Puffin Island.

North Wales Police announced that they were called at 12.59pm to reports of a possible crash. It is believed to have involved a light aircraft which is most likely privately owned.

The coastguard has confirmed that they have launched an emergency search after information was received that a plane had disappeared from radar contact, where an official statement has now been released about the incident:

“HM Coastguard is currently co-ordinating a search and rescue in the Puffin Island area of North Wales following a report at 12.47pm today (25 November) that an aircraft had disappeared from radar contact.

The search and rescue helicopter from Caernarfon has been sent as well as Coastguard Rescue Teams from Penmon and Bangor and a Senior Coastguard Operations Officer. The RNLI lifeboats from Beaumaris, Moelfre and Llandudno and North Wales Police have been sent.”

The coastguard has not yet confirmed how many people were on board the aircraft before it vanished.

We at Euro Weekly News understand that the search operation is ongoing and we will provide further information as and when we receive it.
