The trial of a man accused of dangerous driving after allegedly taking his 4x4 up Snowdon has gone ahead in his absence.
Craig Williams, of Cheltenham, denies driving a Vauxhall Frontera up the mountain twice in 2011.
The judge at Caernarfon Crown Court told the jury it must not hold his absence against him.
