Historic site development fears

Experts and residents near an Anglesey archaeological site, earmarked for a hotel and commercial complex, claim it is in danger of being lost forever.

Enterprise Minister Andrew Davies has ordered the development of Ty Mawr on the outskirts of Holyhead, saying it is crucial to regeneration there.

But there are concerns that historical finds may still lie uncovered there.

The assembly government said the development was a "high priority" to counter job losses in the area.
