Mountain rescuers in Snowdonia say a walker was 'very lucky' to escape serious injury after falling 50ft on the 3,000ft peak of Tryfan.

The man in his 30s was descending the mountain when he fell down a steep slope and ended up unconscious in a stream, where he later came round.

18 members of Ogwen Valley mountain rescue team and an RAF helicopter from Anglesey were called out to assist.

The man was winched off the peak and flown to hospital in Bangor with head and possible back injuries.
