The walker whose body was found by mountain rescuers on Snowdon earlier this week has been named.

Stuart Tyrer, 23, of Cheadle Hulme in Greater Manchester, fell to his death on Wales’s highest mountain while walking on the East Ridge after visiting the summit.

A Search and Rescue Dogs Association Wales handler and his animal, with members of the Llanberis Mountain Rescue Team, found the man’s body on Wednesday morning in a gully below the ridge. He had been reported missing the previous evening.

Mr Tyrer was described as a keen and experienced hillwalker. He worked in a branch of outdoor retailer Ellis Brigham and was a graduate of Nottingham University.

An inquest was opened and adjourned at Caernarfon yesterday.
