Those searching for the victims of a helicopter crash in Snowdonia in Wales say the area where the wreckage is is remote and hazardous.

Five members of the same family died when the helicopter crashed on it's way from Luton to Weston Airport, which straddles the Kildare/Dublin border

The group had been travelling to Dublin for a family event.

Welsh Police say recovering their bodies may take some time because of where the wreckage is and because of the bad weather conditions.
