Two people have died and third is critically ill in hospital after an avalanche in Scotland's Cairngorm Mountains. The avalanche was reported shortly after midday in the Chalamain Gap area. There have been a number of similar incidents in the Cairngorms this winter.
The Ministry of Defence says two of the three people who died after an avalanche in the Scottish Highlands were RAF personnel. Rimon Than, 33, a squadron leader and Flight Lieutenant Fran Capps, 32, were two of the victims.
