Fatality on Scafell Pike

The BBC are reporting the death of a young hill-goer on Scafell Pike.

19-year-old Lee Jones from Derbyshire had become separated from a friend near the summit at about 3pm on Friday. A large search was called off later that night due to terrible conditions. His body was recovered in Piers Gill near the Corridor Route around mid day Saturday.
