Injured walker rescued on Snowdonia after fall on Tryfan

A woman has been airlifted to hospital in Bangor with back injuries after falling while walking in Snowdonia.

An RAF helicopter from Valley, Anglesey, along with 19 members of the Ogwen Valley mountain rescue team were called to Tryfan on Sunday evening.

Rescuers say the woman, who was with another female and a man, strayed into a steep and "nasty" gully on the west face of the 3,000ft (914m) mountain

The group were in their 20s and from Merseyside.

The uninjured walkers were escorted off the peak.
