The family of a 26-year-old Worcestershire woman who died in a 330ft (100m) fall on Snowdon in north Wales have paid tribute to her.

Anna Campiche, of Kidderminster, who was originally from Switzerland, had been hiking with two companions.

Mountain rescue teams helped recover her body.

A family statement said: "Anna loved life and was always smiling, we want to remember her with her English friends."

North Wales Police were called to Crib y Ddysgyl at 11:36 BST on Wednesday.

Coroner Dewi Pritchard-Jones has opened and adjourned an inquest at Caernarfon into the death.

Her family described her death as a "tragic accident".

A statement said: "It was Anna's life long dream to come to England to pursue the outdoor instructor course at Stottesdon.

"We are here with her English friends and colleagues and take comfort from knowing Anna loved her time here.

"We believe she is with God and her first love, the mountains.

"Anna loved life and was always smiling and we want to remember her now with her English friends who have spent the last eight weeks in her company."
