A five-year-old was among a group of three rescued from Tryfan

Ten walkers have been rescued in four separate incidents in Snowdonia.

Three people were brought to safety by members of the Llanberis Mountain Rescue Team after getting lost while descending the Pyg Track on Snowdon, Wales’s highest mountain. The team said the group was not dressed for the conditions.

On the same mountain, a group of four had to be rescued by the Llanberis team after getting stranded on Crib Goch, one of the massif’s most popular ridges, but one with serious exposure that has seen several fatalities over the last few years. The walkers, who included an 11-year-old, were said to be well-equipped but were caught out by bad weather.

On Tryfan, 7km (4½ miles) north-east of Snowdon, an Essex couple and their five-year-old son had to be rescued after reporting they were unable to find their way down from the 918m (3,010ft) peak. Members of the Ogwen Valley Mountain Rescue Organisation led the trio to safety.

The Ogwen Valley team also went to the aid of a woman who slipped near the top of Aber Falls after a long day walking. She was with a large group from Rossendale and was unable to carry on after injuring her hip.

Her walking companions called for help and the Ogwen Valley team members were joined by a Sea King helicopter from RAF Valley on Anglesey, which flew the woman to the Ysbyty Gwynedd in Bangor for further treatment.
