Walkers urged to be well-equipped for winter

Winter jackets and Ordnance Survey maps could be essential items for anyone who is planning to walk in the Brecon Beacons over the next few weeks.

According to Huw Jones from the Central Beacons Mountain Rescue Team, the hills are covered in snow and ice at the moment, Grough reports.

This, he said, means anyone who intends to go walking there in the near future should make sure they are properly prepared before setting off.

"Warm clothes, good boots, warm drink, torch and a map are essential," Mr Jones commented.

"We urge hill-goers to enjoy the conditions while suitably equipped for winter."

He added that this part of south Wales is "particularly special" at this time of year.

However, the dangers of the region were highlighted recently when a hillwalker had to be rescued by mountain rescue workers and an air ambulance on Corn Du.

The Brecon Beacons contains the highest mountain in the southern half of the UK - Pen y Fan, which is 2,906 ft high.
