A COUPLE from Chester was led to safety by mountain rescue team members after getting stuck on Mount Tryfan in Snowdonia.

Ogwen Valley Mountain Rescue team said the man and woman had wandered up the north ridge and then tried to descend the same way.

They dialled 999 about 4pm last Wednesday claiming they could go neither up nor down.

The rescue team discovered them sitting just 10 feet (3m) from the path. They were said to be inadequately equipped with no map or compass.

Tryfan, at 3,010ft high, is one of the best known mountains in Ogwen Valley.
