Cumbrian mountaineer Chris Harling has spoken to ITV News about boulders the size of cars crashing through base camp on Everest when the massive earthquake struck Nepal.
Chris, from Penrith, is a volunteer with Keswick Mountain Rescue Team and was leading the Adventure Peaks Everest North Ridge 2015 Expedition. All his team are unharmed and he says the area has largely escaped the avalanches that have left up to 17 climbers dead. He says his thoughts are with all of those caught up in the disaster, both on Everest and across Nepal.
They are remaining in the camp while they decide what is safest to do next. Hear his exclusive phone interview below:
