Farmer's battle to find sheep trapped by snow


Sheep are dying trapped in snow despite farmers' attempts to dig them out following last week's bad weather.

The Farmers' Union of Wales (FAW) said farmers had their work cut out keeping the sheep they could still see alive, let alone trying to rescue others buried under drifts of 15ft (4.57m).

One hill farmer in Conwy said his sheepdog had helped him find and rescue 70 ewes in the past two days.
