A climber was airlifted from Britain’s highest mountain after falling on a winter route.

The man was climbing on Minus Two Gully on the North Face of Ben Nevis yesterday when he injured his leg.

Lochaber Mountain Rescue Team was called out at 4.45pm and a Sea King helicopter from RAF Lossiemouth flew to the scene.

He was flown from the mountain to Belford Hospital, Fort William, for further treatment.
