The body of a missing man has been found on Scafell Pike.

Police said Chris Brown’s body was found in the early hours of Tuesday.

The 35-year-old Whitehaven postman had been reported missing on Scafell Pike after reaching the summit about 4.20pm on Monday.

His wife Sam appealed via social media for sightings of him.

Rescuers found his body at Chambers Crag at the top of Little Narrowcove after a search that began on Monday evening.

Cumbria Constabulary said: “The circumstances of Mr Brown’s death are not believed to be suspicious and his family have been informed.”

Mrs Brown posted on Facebook: “We had our whole lives ahead of us and I can’t put into words how it feels now that’s been taken away.

“I will forever treasure the memories we made together and will let your memory live on through our daughter.”
