A warning has been issued at a North Wales beach. Conwy council put out a notice over metal spikes found on one of the region's top sandy beaches.

The spikes were seen in the sands at Penmaenmawr. Harbour staff from the local authority have been removing them to make the beach safe.

They say that they are left by fishers who used them to anchor nets. The council warned they are a danger to other beach users and asked people to report it to the local authority if they find any.
