Five walkers stranded in thick cloud on a mountain in Snowdonia have been led to safety by rescuers.

Twelve members of Ogwen Valley mountain rescue team found the group on the west face of the 3,000ft (914m) high Tryfan on Monday night.

In a separate incident the team also rescued a man and woman from north Wales who were lost on the same peak.

They were discovered by the 17 rescuers in the western gully area, and were escorted off on Monday night.

In another rescue, an RAF Sea King helicopter from Valley on Anglesey airlifted a hill walker in his mid-40s off Cader Idris, near Dolgellau, Gwynedd, on Monday afternoon.

He was flown to Bronglais Hospital at Aberystwyth after spraining his ankle.
