TWO couples from Warrington had to be rescued by an emergency team after becoming trapped on a mountain during a hike in Snowdonia in North Wales.

Ogwen Valley Mountain Rescue Organisation said the couples, in their late 20s and early 30s, had wandered onto a notoriously dangerous part of mountain Tryfan, coming to a vertical drop.

The incident happened at around 2.10pm on Sunday, August 3.

An emergency call was made to the mountain rescue team, who used local knowledge to reach the stranded group safely.

They were escorted down from the northern ridge by four members of OVMRO.

It added the mistake was easy to make, with walkers regularly becoming stuck on that part of the mountain.
