A member of the public reported at 10.45 this morning that they believed two climbers had been caught in the avalanche in Coire na Ciste. Police have now confirmed one body has been found.

Lochaber Mountain Rescue Team members have been joined by colleagues from the RAF Leuchars team and animals and handlers from the Search and Rescue Dogs Association. A spokesperson for the Northern Constabulary said the search was continuing.
