Widow of Nepal crash victim says he should've been able to trust the safety of the airline

The widow of a man killed in an air crash in Nepal says her husband and the other people who died should have been able to trust the safety of the airline.

Angie Gaunt's husband Tim was one of four people from the North West who died in the crash in 2012. The Nepalese airline had an unblemished record - but an inquest into his death found a catalogue of errors and failures.

Now Tim's family want all tourists to be told the full background of any company they are travelling with.
