Paraglider rescued by RAF after Snowdonia crash

A paraglider who crashed in Snowdonia has been saved by an RAF rescue crew.

The 35-year-old man escaped with a broken ankle after a "spiral descent" which brought him to ground near Llanberis.

He was flown to hospital at Bangor for treatment by an RAF helicopter based at Valley in Anglesey.

Valley's C Flight 22, where Prince William works as a search and rescue helicopter pilot, have been invited to the royal wedding on Friday.
