A lone walker who fell about 100ft (30m) on Snowdon has been airlifted to hospital after being stretchered to safety by rescue teams.

Llanberis Mountain Rescue were called to the Miner's Track on the 3,500ft mountain at lunchtime on Sunday.

The man had to be carried half-a-mile by the rescue team, before the coastguard rescue helicopter could help.

The man was taken to hospital in Bangor, where his condition is unknown.

On Saturday, a seven-year-old boy had to be rescued on the nearby peak of Crib y Ddysgl.
