A walker was rescued after becoming unwell while walking at a south Wales beauty spot.

The man was with his wife near the Sgŵd Gwladus waterfall, Pontneddfechan, on Thursday when he got into difficulties.

Dyfed Powys Police requested the help of the Western Beacons Mountain Search and Rescue Team at the incident, which Welsh Ambulance Service attended.

A team spokesperson said: “Following treatment by a paramedic, members of Western Beacons, alongside colleagues from Brecon Mountain Rescue Team and Central Beacons Mountain Rescue, gently evacuated the gentleman by stretcher to awaiting ambulance.

“Once more close co-operation between local mountain rescue teams and other agencies saw the incident brought to a successful conclusion.”
