A walker was stretchered from woodland near Machynlleth in mid-Wales after injuring herself in a slip.

Aberdyfi Search and Rescue Team was contacted about 1pm on Sunday with a request to help with bringing the woman to safety at Tre’r-ddôl.

A team spokesperson said: “The 47-year-old local woman had been enjoying the wooded riverside paths of the Afon Clettwr near the Wildfowler Inn with her husband when she slipped and injured her ankle.

“A Coastguard team was first in attendance, and Aberdyfi team volunteers arrived with equipment to help splint the injured limb and transport her off the hill.

“The casualty was back down at the road shortly before 3pm and the family made their own way to hospital for further assessment and treatment.”
