A climber has tragically plunged to his death near a picturesque Welsh town.
The man was climbing near Llangollen, situated on the River Dee, and suffered serious injuries after a fall.
Welsh ambulance service paramedics were first to the scene but the climber could not be saved.
North East Wales Search and Rescue team and a coastguard rescue helicopter from Caernarfon attended.
Team members ensured everyone was escorted safely from the site and used a rope rescue system to lower the body back to the road for handover to the ambulance.
The NEWSAR team said tonight: ‘We wish to recognise the efforts of everyone, not least the other climbers present, in their efforts to try to save his life.
‘Our condolences go out to the family and friends of the casualty.’
