A man is on trial accused of two counts of dangerous driving - after a 4x4 vehicle was twice found near the summit of Snowdon. Craig Williams, from Cheltenham in Gloucestershire, denies both counts.
He did not appear at Caernarfon Crown Court this morning, as the trial got underway without him. The judge swore the jury in and told them they shouldn't infer or imply anything from him not being there.
The prosecution told the court that, on the second occasion, the vehicle was found with signs which read 'I made it to the summit' and saying it was for sale on eBay.
The case continues. It is expected to finish on Friday.
