It took around 30 hours for emergency teams to be able to reach Philip Goodeve-Docker's team and airlift them to safety but Mr Goodeve-Docker died before their arrival.

The London events manager was on the unsupported crossing with experienced expedition leader Roan Hackney and Andy Norman, a former IT professional, who both remain in a "critical condition" in hospital.
