Harry Greaves recorded poetry before he died in Peru

A British tourist who died while mountaineering in Peru recorded poetry and left it on his father's computer.

Harry Greaves went on a solo walk on 7 April to spend his 29th birthday two days later alone in the Andes.

His body was found in a 40-metre crevice on 20 April. His family believe he lost his footing and fell.

The recordings of poems entitled A Life Lived In Love, This Is My Dream and What It Is To Be A Man, were of great comfort, his father Simon Greaves said.

Harry, who lived in Wrexham but was from Bronygarth near Oswestry, was due to fly back on Saturday.
