RAF Helicopter called to rescue mountain biker

Paramedics called in an RAF helicopter to winch an injured mountain biker off the hills around Llyn Brianne, near Llandovery, in Powys.

Neither paramedics or a Welsh Air Ambulance crew could reach the scene where the 35-year-old man had been injured at 1226 BST on Saturday.

It is believed he suffered a spinal injury after colliding with a wall.

The man was flown to University Hospital of Wales in Cardiff. His condition is not known.
