One of three people killed in an avalanche in the Scottish Highlands yesterday was an RAF squadron leader, Northern Constabulary has said.
Rimon Than, 33, who was based at RAF Valley, North Wales, was killed in the incident in the Cairngorms.
The three were airlifted from the Chalamain Gap area to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary shortly after 12.30pm yesterday.
The avalanche struck as two groups of six climbers made their way up opposite sides of a gorge.
One group was part of a Glenmore Lodge organised winter skills training course and the second was off-duty RAF personnel.
