A mountain biker was airlifted from a hillside in Snowdonia after suffering serious injuries.

Aberdyfi Search and Rescue Team was alerted about 1.30pm on Friday to the incident at a remote location north-east of the village of Dinas Mawddwy.

A team spokesperson said: “The air ambulance was already in attendance, had landed as close as they could get to the injured man, and had begun to stabilise and treat his multiple injuries.

“The Helimed helicopter does not have winching capability, so the assistance of Coastguard Rescue 936 [from Caernarfon] was requested to lift the injured man from the steep, rocky slope.

“The rider was flown to a better landing site and transferred to the air ambulance for transfer to Stoke for hospital-based emergency care.”

The rescue ended shortly before 4pm.
