A walker was rescued after spending the night on Britain’s highest mountain.

Lochaber Mountain Rescue Team was alerted after reports the walker was stuck on the summit of Ben Nevis overnight.

A team spokesperson said the missing person was found at the top of the waterslide on the southern slopes of the mountain after ending up in Coire Eòghainn, the scene of a major rescue a week ago involving four charity walkers.

A Royal Navy Sea King search and rescue helicopter from HMS Gannet in Ayrshire flew to the scene and airlifted the walker back to the Lochaber MRT base at Fort William.
