Five men who became stuck on a crag on Snowdon had to be roped down to safety by rescuers on Sunday night.

The group were on the east side of Snowdon, which was covered in snow and mist.

Llanberis mountain rescuers hiked up Y Cribau ridge and helped the team down the Llanberis path to a Land Rover.

Meanwhile, a couple needed help from the Aberdyfi search and rescue team after they got lost on Cader Idris in Snowdonia.

A spokesman for the rescue team said the couple, from Cannock, Staffordshire, had become disorientated and had come down the wrong side of the mountain after reaching the peak from the Minffordd side.

Rescuers found them using information sent directly from their smartphone and walked the pair off the mountain.
