A man’s body has been found by walkers on a Snowdonia mountain.
The remains were found on Cadair Idris in the South of the national park yesterday.
The man’s body was discovered in a craggy area between the 893m (2,930ft) summit and Llyn y Gadair and was recovered by members of the Aberdyfi Search and Rescue Team.
A Sea King helicopter from RAF Valley also helped in the recovery of the walker’s remains.
A team spokesperson said: “The casualty was recovered to a stretcher by the team, and owing to the difficult nature of the terrain the RAF Sea King Rescue helicopter assisted in lifting the walker off the mountain.”
North Wales Police said the death is not being treated as suspicious and that the deceased’s identity is likely to be established by scientific methods, which may take a few days.
