Three walkers have been airlifted off Snowdonia after a woman fell 50ft, hit a couple, knocking the man unconscious.

She was 500ft up when she fell at Tryfan in the Ogwen Valley, Gwynedd, and collided with the husband and wife.

All three, from Merseyside, were airlifted by RAF helicopter and flown to Ysbyty Gwynedd, Bangor, with minor injuries.

In a separate incident on Saturday at Tryfan, a couple was rescued after getting lost.

The woman, from Ecuador, also fell and had to be flown to hospital.
