Safety warning after Snowdon walkers rescued

A 21-year-old has been described as "very, very lucky" after falling hundreds of feet on Snowdon and escaping with minor cuts.

The man - from Leicestershire - fell on the Watkin Path. He was flown by a helicoper from RAF Valley to hospital in Bangor.

A 37-year-old man from Belfast was also taken to hospital with a suspected jaw injury today, after falling from the Miners Track.

The man is not believed to have used crampons - despite recent warnings from mountain rescue teams of the necessity for "proper equipment".
