A farmer has been seriously injured after falling 40m at a disused quarry while tending to his livestock.
He is in a stable condition in hospital with serious injuries after the fall at the quarry near Penygroes.
Mountain Rescue, along with the Welsh Ambulance Service, EMRTS Wales and North Wales Cave Rescue, recovered the casualty following a search effort mounted by family and friends.

A team doctor was lowered into the quarry and found the farmer lying on the floor unable to move.
He had suffered multiple injuries to his head and legs.
