Dead climber was 'wonderful teacher'

Former colleagues of a teacher from Castleford whose body was found after a climbing accident in the highlands of Scotland have described him as a "wonderful" teacher.

Graham Connell was with a party of 35 climbers from Leeds University, when the tragedy happened in the Cairngorms at the weekend.

Graham Connell was a wonderful member of staff who made a phenomenal contribution to Drama, Music and Dance productions over many years at Ralph Thoresby School. He will be greatly missed by staff and students and our thoughts are with his family at this difficult time.
