A 12-year-old boy with a broken ankle was airlifted off Snowdon after he was injured on an adventure exercise.

The boy was 1,400ft (426m) up the mountain near the Rhyd Ddu path when he got into trouble on Saturday.

He was flown to hospital in Bangor by a RAF crew from Valley on Anglesey.

In a separate incident, a man, 38, suffering from cramp in both legs was rescued from the other side of the peak.
