Men on 'wrong' peak in Snowdonia rescued

Two men from Merseyside who were on the "wrong" peak in Snowdonia after relying on an electronic map have been rescued.

The pair, both in their 20s, were meant to be walking on Carnedd Llewelyn but were on nearby Pen yr Ole Wen instead.

Ogwen Valley Mountain Rescue were called at 18:00 GMT on Saturday.

The team also escorted to safety four German women and a Norwegian man lost in the dark on Devil's Kitchen, which is also in the Ogwen valley.

In a third rescue on Saturday night, two climbers stuck above the Llanberis Pass were winched to safety by an RAF rescue helicopter from Valley, Anglesey.
