Up to 300 tents were wrecked and one camper knocked out after strong winds tore through a Gwynedd campsite. The Shell Island campsite near Barmouth opened an emergency shelter in its bar area as the winds struck on Sunday evening. Co-owner Richard Workman said the campsite had around 3,000 people staying on Sunday evening, some of whom ended up sleeping on the bar floor. He estimated around Â£150,000 worth of damage had been caused. Mr Workman added: "The ambulance service was called out three times on Sunday night. One lad was knocked by a pole as he was trying to save his tent." He said around 500 families left the site on Bank Holiday Monday, many having lost their tents completely.
