The bodies of a man and woman found on Ben Nevis are that of a couple missing since February, police have said.
Experienced climbers Rachel Slater, 24 and Tim Newton, 27, were reported missing on February 15 after failing to return from a climb on Britain’s highest mountain.
Multiple searches by rescue teams had been carried out for the couple, from Bradford, West Yorkshire, with efforts hampered by hazardous weather and avalanche risks.
The alarm was raised for the pair on Monday February 15 when they were reported overdue in returning from an expedition.
Police Scotland said on Wednesday night two bodies had been found and confirmed on Thursday they are those of the missing climbers.
