A student died after falling 1,300ft in Snowdonia, an inquest has heard.

Christopher Wilson, 18, of Brixham, Devon, died on 26 July on Crib y Ddysgl.

At an inquest opening in Caernarfon, Gwynedd, the coroner heard Mr Wilson was walking with his father when he fell down a hill, suffering "multiple substantial injuries".

Crib y Ddysgl is 0.6 miles (1km) from Snowdon and is the second highest mountain in Wales.

An investigation into the fall will continue and the inquest was adjourned.
