Mountain Rescue team save Kent pair

A mother and son had to be rescued overnight after getting stuck in a North Wales mountain range, without the proper equipment.

Mountain rescuers have told Heart that people who try climbing Wales and England's highest mountains without experience and without the right equipment are taking their lives in their hands. 

It comes after a mother and son from Kent had to be rescued from Snowdon on Thursday morning. They were suffering from hypothermia and Phil Bentbo from Llanberis Mountain Rescue Team says the conditions were getting dangerous: "the wind was around 70 miles per hour gusting, in cloud, lots of snow flying around, they'd become cold and were in difficulties.
