Two men airlifted from Snowdon and taken to hospital

Two men have been airlifted from Snowdon and taken to hospital in separate incidents.

In the first, an RAF Sea King helicopter winched a 20-year-old man onboard after complaining of chest pains.

He was airlifted shortly after 16:00 BST on Wednesday on the Ranger Path.

The helicopter then flew to where the Pyg and Miners tracks meet on the mountain and picked up a man, also in his 20s, with a broken ankle.

They were both taken to Ysbyty Gwynedd hospital in Bangor.
