Rescuers battled through 70mph gales to help six ill-equipped walkers off a Snowdonia peak.

Ogwen Valley Mountain Rescue team were called to four women and two men who got into difficulty on Tryfan on Friday evening.

The group, in their 20s from London, had ventured up the mountain's north ridge despite a forecast of worsening weather.

Six rescuers who attended the call-out gave them "suitable advice".
