Gordon Brown Goes AWOL as BMC Heads for No.10

Over a hundred climbers and mountaineers, donning newly purchased dresses and suits, are visiting No. 10 Downing Street tomorrow in what is billed as a 'Celebration of British Mountaineering'.

Unfortunately due to the financial crisis, Prime Minister Gordon Brown can't make it and the event will now be hosted by Sports Minister Gerry Sutcliffe.

There is a full report and press release at the BMC website BMC heads to No.10
