Prince William has just co-piloted a helicopter that rescued two people after their ship was hit by an enormous wave. The video above is an early rough cut with no reporter narration; it is from Reuters, the international newsagency.

One person is dead and another five are missing after an 81-metre cargo carrier sank off the coast of north Wales after being hit by an enormous wave.

The Prince was called into action after the Swanland issued a mayday call  when its hull cracked.
