A major search operation has launched for a helicopter that has gone missing over the Irish Sea.
The privately owned helicopter carrying five people on board is believed to have left Milton Keynes en route to Dublin.
Radar contact with the helicopter was lost earlier this afternoon and the UK Coastguard was notified to start a search operation around 4.15pm.
The search operation coordinated by the UK Coast Guard is currently underway focusing on the area between Caernarfon Bay and the shore of Dublin. Two search and rescue helicopters are involved with the search.
