Snowdon climber Mark Roberts captures 100ft fall

Footage showing a climber's 100ft (30m) fall down a gully on Snowdon has been published online.

Climber and a safety consultant Mark Roberts, 47, was wearing a head camera when he lost his grip despite using ice axes, plunging over rocks and snow.

"You just try not to panic and hope there's some luck with you," he tells the British Mountaineering Council website which has posted his film.

He was airlifted to hospital with ankle injuries but was not seriously hurt.
