A young couple from Flintshire and their dog have been saved, after being trapped in a dangerous gully in Snowdonia last night.
Rescuers praised the crew of a police helicopter who had photographed their location on Tryfan.
They landed near the headquarters of Ogwen Mountain Rescue Team, and handed over a computer memory stick, enabling team organisers to know the exact whereabouts of the couple.
Team spokesman Chris Lloyd said they were grateful for their support, and a great use of modern communications.
The couple, who are in their twenties, were described as being inadequately equipped for a day on the mountains, but were unharmed.
