Walker dies after falling on Snowdonia's Crib Goch ridge

A man died after falling while walking on a Snowdonia peak on Saturday, a mountain rescue group has said.

The man, in his 30s and from the Midlands, was part of a group of three who were climbing down the Crib Goch ridge when the incident happened at about 11:00 BST.

Llanberis mountain rescue said they were called at 13:00 when the other two raised the alarm.

It is believed the group had turned back because of heavy snow.

A spokesman for Llanberis mountain rescue said it was a "tragic accident".
