Woman airlifted to hospital after mountain fall

A woman was airlifted to Ysbyty Gwynedd at Bangor yesterday following a fall in the Gelli Iago area, near Beddgelert yesterday afternoon.

The Aberglaslyn Mountain Rescue Team were scrambled to assist the sixty-three-year old from the West Midlands at around half 3.

It was found the woman had broken her ankle and given the difficult terrain, an RAF Rescue Helicopter from RAF Valley on Anglesey was called and the woman transported to hospital.
