Rescue teams in south Wales found a man who was suffering from the cold after losing his way.

Brecon Mountain Rescue Team (MRT) and their neighbours Central Beacons MRT were involved in a four-and-a-half-hour search for the man, who was described as having learning difficulties. He was discovered on Corn Ddu early today and warmed by rescuers.

Search dogs, police and paramedics were involved in the incident. The man had no map or compass and was poorly equipped. Visibility of only 10m prevented the use of a search-and-rescue helicopter.

The man, aged 47, from Caerphilly, became stranded in the Beacons after missing a bus back to his home town from Storey Arms.

28 MRT members and three dog handlers were involved in the search, which ended at 6.30 this morning.
