A 54-year-old man has collapsed and died when mountain biking along a popular forest track in Snowdonia.

It happened on Saturday evening on the Marin Trail near Betws-y-Coed when the man, from Flintshire, was cycling with a brother and friend.

An ambulance could get only within a quarter of a mile so an Ogwen mountain rescue team went to help.

Attempts to revive the cyclist, who had suffered chest pains, were made but without success.

Rescue team members carried him on a stretcher to an ambulance.
