Colleagues from England joined Scottish mountain rescuers in a search for a missing walker in the Mamores.

Eight dog handlers also took part in the huge search for the walker, who is believed to be in the Ring of Steall area, south of Glen Nevis.

Volunteers from Lochaber and Glencoe Mountain Rescue Teams were on the mountains again today after calling off their search overnight.

Their numbers were bolstered by members of RAF Lossiemouth and RAF Leeming Mountain Rescue Teams and Police Scotland members, along with volunteers from the Penrith MRT in Cumbria.

Despite the efforts of 77 rescuer and eight Search and Rescue Dogs Association members, the missing walker was not found.

Conditions were described as atrocious and challenging, with heavy snow showers and avalanches.

A Lochaber MRT spokesperson said: “The search will resume when the weather improves with hopefully more information.”

The spokesperson appealed for anyone heading for the Scottish mountains to leave details of their route with a friend or family member.
