A walker has died after collapsing on Wales’s highest mountain.

Llanberis Mountain Rescue Team was alerted about 10.15am on Sunday that the man was in difficulties on the Llanberis Path on Snowdon.

A team spokesperson said: “The Maritime and Coastguard Agency Rescue 936 helicopter was immediately requested and, after deploying their onboard paramedic, returned to ferry Llanberis MRT members up to the location near the Halfway Cafe.

“Despite the sterling efforts of many passing members of the public, these proved to be in vain and, unfortunately, the gentleman passed away.

“Our thoughts are with our fellow hillwalker’s family and friends and we’d also like to commend the efforts of those passing walkers who did everything possible to try and make this a better outcome.”
