Trio rescued on Mourne mountains

Three people have been airlifted to safety in two separate incidents in the Mourne Mountains.

The mountain rescue teams and a helicopter were called to help two teenagers trapped on Eagle Rock, Slieve Donard.

During the incident the teams got a report of a 74-year-old man who had fallen on the Saddle, between Donard and Commeda.

They airlifted the teenagers to Donard car park in Newcastle before returning to pick up the elderly man.

He was taken to hospital to be treated for head injuries.
