Climbers have been returning from base camp at Mount Everest after sherpa guides cancelled all climbing this year.

The expeditions were abandoned after a deadly avalanche hit the world's tallest peak on 18 April - killing 16 Nepalese guides.

British climber and expedition leader Tim Mosedale has just come back from base camp and was leaving for Kathmandu.

He said it has been a "huge emotional rollercoaster" since the tragedy.

"There seems to be some sort of political motive going on amongst the sherpa community and the government," he told the BBC's Yogita Limaye.
