Stephen Holding was 'a gentle giant of a man'

Tributes have poured in for the seven British men who died in a Nepal plane crash today.

Stephen Holding from Staffordshire was a member of Bremex Mountaineering and Climbing Club.

Club member Matt Morton described him as someone who always had time for others.

I would just say he was a gentle giant of a man. He was tall, quietly spoken and just a genuinely nice chap - he was always interested in what other people were doing and always happy to have a chat.

– Matt Morton
