TWO teams of student hikers from Oxford University were rescued from mountains in Snowdonia over the weekend.

Four men and one woman, who were rock climbing, had to be led off Tryfan mountain by Ogwen Valley mountain rescue team on Saturday night.

They were rescued after the lead climber suffered from cold and exhaustion.

Mountain rescue teams were out again in the early hours of Sunday when two men became stranded on the Lliwedd peak.

They were rescued in a four-hour operation by the Llanberis response team.
