A man undergoing a two-day solo survival exercise in Snowdonia had to be recovered by mountain rescuers after blacking out.

Members of the Ogwen Valley team were called to the Gwydyr Forest on Sunday evening at about 19.00 BST.

A spokesman said the man, who is in his 20s and local to the Conwy Valley, had hurt his knee and back and was lying under a tree when he rang them.

The man was able to use his torch and whistle to guide them to the location.

He was stretchered out of the forest and taken by ambulance to hospital.
