Firefighters are tackling a huge blaze at Holyhead Marina.

Flames have been seen coming from a building at the marina, as residents took to social media to describe an 'explosion' just after 9pm on Thursday.

Crews from North Wales Fire and Rescue are at the scene and have urged nearby homeowners to stay indoors and close windows.

A service spokesperson said: "The Fire Service are currently dealing with an incident at the Marina in Holyhead.

"We are advising the public to keep all windows and doors closed and ask the public to stay away from the area at this time. Thank you for you co-operation."

RNLI Holyhead tweeted: "Devastating scenes here in Holyhead Our ILB has been taken to safety but this is awful to see. Please stay safe everyone."

Albert Owen, MP for Ynys Mon, took to Twitter to say: "I understand that there are no reported injuries at the Marina fire in Holyhead.

"Emergency services have the matter under control. Evacuation of area is precautionary."
