A girl was rescued from a Snowdonia hilltrack after suffering a suspected broken ankle.

Aberdyfi Search and Rescue Team was alerted about 2.15pm on Tuesday after the incident on the track, east of Tywyn.

A team spokesperson said: “The girl, aged 12, was part of an outdoor education group enjoying the hilltrack joining Bryncrug, near Tywyn, to Happy Valley.

“Centre staff stabilised the injury and escorted the rest of the group to safety as team volunteers made their way to assist with the evacuation of the child.

“Team volunteers were able to access the scene by 4×4 and, having assessed and packaged the casualty, she was driven back down the track to a waiting centre vehicle for transport to hospital.”
