The pair were trapped on Tryfan in Snowdonia, and were saved by a RAF Sea King from Valley on Anglesey, which winched them to safety on Sunday.

Later, the rescue team picked up an injured walker on Crib Goch, a narrow ridge on Snowdon, after hurting his leg.

He was taken to hospital in Bangor, Gwynedd.
