The father of Ben Ogden paid tribute to his "spirited" son killed in a plane crash in Nepal on Wednesday. Andrew Ogden told The Daily Telegraph:

"We are all absolutely devastated. He was very spirited and this is something that he wanted to do. We used to talk about the trip as his big adventure before knuckling down to some serious work.

He was very excited by the prospect of doing something that not many people had done. I have always been the most incredibly proud father."
