RAF footage of rescue of family on farm in snow near Wrexham

A family with a baby who were trapped in a hillside farm during the last few days of snow were forced to burn old furniture to keep warm.

They were stranded without power at a farm at Bryneglwys near Wrexham.

The four were airlifted to safety on Sunday by a helicopter from RAF Valley on Anglesey and flown to hospital.

Video footage from the RAF shows the rescue helicopter arriving at the farm.
