Man faces new charges over Snowdon 4x4 case
Bookmark and Share
A man already facing charges of dangerous driving is now confronted with a second case of them after allegedly making a further ascent of Snowdon in a 4x4.

North Wales Police have charged 39-year-old Craig Williams from Gloucestershire over the two instances of the Vauxhall Frontera being driven up the mountain, with the second case seeing it reach as far as the Hayod Eryri building just below the summit.

As well as a dangerous driving charge, he is also accused of driving a vehicle on moorland.

Those using walking boots to climb Snowdon may be pleased to know the vehicle was towed away, which may be the last they ever see of it.

In addition to its famous mountain railway, Snowdon - the only UK mountain outside Scotland that is over 3,500 ft high - can be climbed by foot via several different routes.

These include the Llanberis Path, the PYG track, the Miner's Path and the Crib Goch scramble.
