A 68-year-old walker from Peterborough suffered head and leg injuries after he slipped and fell 40ft (12.2m) in a steep river gorge in south Snowdonia.

The man fell at Dolgoch Falls, a beauty spot near Abergynolwyn, while with his family on Tuesday.

Paramedics treated the man before 13 members of the Aberdyfi Search and Rescue Team carried him down a rocky path on a stretcher.

The injured man was flown to hospital at Bangor by air ambulance.
