A camper requested help from mountain rescuers after his tent pole broke on a Snowdonia mountain.

The man called from the summit of Glyder Fach on Tuesday, where he was wild camping.

Ogwen Valley Mountain Rescue Organisation was alerted about 12.45am.

A team spokesperson said: “He was contacted by a team leader who confirmed there was no injury and that the weather was reasonable, then the camper was advised to stay in his tent and wait till daylight before walking down.”

The rescue team checked on the man’s welfare at dawn and agreed no mountain rescue action was required.
