A teenager was rescued after injuring themselves while rock-climbing in Snowdonia.

Ogwen Valley Mountain Rescue Organisation was called out at 4.40pm on Saturday when the young climber suffered a suspected dislocated knee while on a route on Tryfan Bach.

Nine members of the Mountain Rescue Service from RAF Leeming, who were training in the area, were first on the scene and treated the climber, who was with a well organised group, at the base of the crag after being been lowered.

Ogwen Valley MRO members joined the RAF team in stretchering the youth to the road.

Members of the climber’s group then took the injured teenager to Ysbyty Gwynedd in Bangor for further treatment.

Six Ogwen Valley team members were involved in the two-hour rescue.
