Two men have been airlifted to safety off a mountain in Snowdonia after they were injured in a fall.

The pair were making their way down from the summit of Tryfan when they got into difficulty on Wednesday evening.

One man, 79, slipped and cut his head, while his friend, 69, dislocated one finger and cut another.

The Ogwen Valley Mountain Rescue team attended before the men were winched aboard a RAF Sea King helicopter and flown to hospital in Bangor.
