Second Snowdon drive leads to arrest

A man has been arrested by police after a 4x4 vehicle was found abandoned on the top of Mount Snowdon for the second time in a month.

The Vauxhall Frontera was found near the visitors' centre on Thursday morning.

The vehicle's owner, Craig Anthony Williams, 39, of Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, was charged with dangerous driving and is due in court next week. The vehicle, which was first discovered on the 3,560ft summit on 3 September, was found with a sign in its windscreen saying it was to be put up for auction online.

North Wales Police said it had arrested a 39-year-old man on suspicion of dangerous driving and causing criminal damage. He has been released on police bail pending further inquiries.
