Glencoe avalanche: Church prayers for dead climbers


Prayers are to be offered in a church in Glencoe for people affected by an avalanche that killed four climbers and left a fifth with head injuries.

The Reverend Moira Herkes, who will lead the prayers at St Munda's Church, in the Highlands, said it was "the worst accident... here for many years".

Six climbers were caught up in the avalanche on Bidean Nam Bian mountain at about 14:00 GMT on Saturday.
