A British man has died after getting into difficulty during an expedition in Greenland, the Foreign Office has said. Philip Goodeve-Docker was crossing the Greenland ice cap with two friends on a 'trip of a lifetime' when the group got into trouble.
The three were rescued by local authorities but Mr Goodeve-Docker died. The other two British men remain in hospital.
A spokeswoman for the Foreign Office said they were alerted to the situation on Sunday.
On a fundraising website set up by Mr Goodeve-Docker, he described the trip as a 550-600km challenge across the world's second largest ice cap which would take between 30 to 35 days.
He spoke of the dangers that he could face during what turned into a fatal trip.
He had raised almost £6,000 for the The Queen's Nursing Institute. He dedicated the trip to his grandfather who died two years ago. Andy Norman from Ascot was travelling to the Arctic for the first time, he documented his preparations on his facebook page.
