Mountain and Cave Rescuers were alerted over the weekend to search for a group of 17 missing photographers.



The Aberglaslyn Mountain Rescue Team were called at 00:08am to search for a group of 17 persons who had been reported overdue in the disused Rhosydd Quarry near Croesor. The group were part of a photography forum from the Liverpool and Wallasey area who had ventured underground in the early afternoon to take photographs.



A spokesperson from the Aberglaslyn Team said "The group had been expected to arrive home in the Wallasey area in the early evening, therefore by the time concerned relatives reported them missing they were already some 8 hours overdue.



A large search operation was instigated, with assistance sought by the North Wales Cave Rescue Organisation and North Wales Police officers who located the group’s vehicles at Tanygrisiau. An RAF Rescue Helicopter from RAF Valley on Anglesey were also alerted, but unable to assist due to the inclement weather.



The spokesperson said ''Luckily, the group were located safe and well upon arriving back at their vehicles, with no injuries to any of the group at having been underground over 14 hours. The group had severely mis-judged the length of the route, which coupled with the large numbers and it being the first trip underground for a large percentage of the group, it made progress difficult for them.



The rescue operation concluded at 03:30am
oh, what fresh hell is this?
