Rescuers have abandoned attempts to find three climbers caught in an avalanche last week and a mountaineer who fell while climbing Ben Nevis nine days ago.

Dr Allan Lang, 50, his son Richard, 18, and his friend Paul Bower, 18, all from West Yorkshire, were descending a peak in Glencoe when the avalanche struck.

Anthony Marsh, from Manchester, fell through a snow cornice near the summit of Ben Nevis.
