Teenager named as avalanche victim
An 18-year-old student from Cornwall has been named as the third climber killed in an avalanche in the Scottish Highlands on Valentine's Day.
William Currie, from Newbridge near Penzance, died after he became buried under 12ft of snow in the Cairngorms last Thursday.
RAF Squadron leader Rimon Than, 33, who was based at RAF Valley, North Wales, and Flight Lieutenant Fran Capps, 32, originally from Dulverton, Somerset, also died.
Mr Currie, a former Truro College student, was among one of two groups of six climbers who were making their way up opposite sides of a gorge when the avalanche struck.

The teenager had been on a week-long course at Glenmore Lodge outdoor training centre when the accident happened in the Chalamain Gap area.
The three were airlifted from the mountain range to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary but died of their injuries.
A spokesman for the Northern Constabulary Police confirmed the teenager's identity yesterday.
Last month, four people including PhD student Tom Chesters, 28, originally from Ottery St Mary, were killed in an avalanche in Glencoe.
