Three Portsmouth men have been rescued from a Welsh peak.

They were hauled 100ft to safety in Snowdonia.

BBC North West Wales reported that the men raised the alarm at 5.30pm yesterday after getting stuck at Cwm Idwal.

Volunteers from Ogwen Mountain Rescue Team used ropes to pull the men, who were not injured, up the mountain.

A rescue team spokesmen, who described the rescued climbers as ‘motivated and enthusiastic, said they had made a navigational error in low cloud.
