A climber was airlifted from Britain’s highest mountain after injuring himself in a fall.

Members of the Lochaber Mountain Rescue Team were called out on Sunday after the incident in Point Five Gully on Ben Nevis’s North Face.

A Royal Navy Sea King helicopter from HMS Gannet in Ayrshire also flew to the area and airlifted rescue team members to the site.

A Lochaber team member was lowered from near the top of the gully to aid the man, who suffered a leg injury in a long fall from the grade V route’s rouge pitch.

The climber was then lowered to where other rescuers were waiting with a stretcher.

After treatment on the mountain, he was winched on board in the stretcher and flown to hospital for further treatment.
