Surveyors find body on Snowdonia moorland

Snowdonia National Park surveyors have discovered the body of a man while they were working on moorland near Dolwyddelan, Conwy.

The discovery was made on Tuesday three miles (5km) east of Moel Siabod, a peak above the Ogwen Valley.

It is believed to be the body of an elderly man who had been missing in the area since 2008.

The remains were taken to hospital in Bangor for a post mortem examination to be carried out.

Two members of the Ogwen Valley Mountain Rescue Team were flown to the scene by police helicopter and were then joined by five more rescuers who managed to reach the area by Land Rover.
