Company not guilty of manslaughter on Everest.

Michael Matthews, 22, died six years ago.  He had reached the summit of Everest and was the youngest to do so, but was caught in a blizzard the same day which caused his death before his return to base-camp. He had paid £22,000  for the adventure.

Dismissing the case, Judge Geoffrey Rivlin QC, Southwark Crown Court said "It was a terrible accident, but the law should not inhibit adventure."
