A stranded dog sparked a major mountain search after it was spotted on cliffs in Snowdonia.

Ogwen Valley Mountain Rescue team, police and RAF rescue helicopters took part in a search for a possible fallen walker on Y Garn after the black and white Jack Russell was seen near Cwm Cywion gorge.

Four members of the Ogwen team climbed steep terrain to rescue the terrier.

The dog was then tucked into a rescuer's jacket and lowered to safety.

It is not known who owns the dog.
