The mountain rescue team who recovered the body of Martham man on a Scottish mountain has sent its condolences to his family.

The body of 38-year-old Christopher Fryer was found on the Sgurr Thuilm mountain in the Glenfinnan area over the weekend, after he had slipped and fell.

The Lochaber Mountain and Rescue Team, which retrieved his body, has passed on its condolences.

A statement from the team said: “We had a fatality on Sgurr Thuilm in the Glenfinnan area when a hill walker slipped while descending and suffered fatal injuries in the fall.

“The team were assisted in retrieving the casualty. Our thoughts are with Chris’s family.”

The recovery came as the mountain and rescue team carried out a series of rescues and searches over the last several days, including recovering the body of a dead climber and rescuing three hill walkers.

A statement from the team added: “Thanks to all the teams and crews who have assisted us over last week which has been challenging.

“We would wish to offer the friends and families of all the people who have lost their lives in our mountains. Our thoughts are with you.”

Mr Fryer’s Facebook page says he is married, attended Acle High School and also studied in Lowestoft.

He worked at Aker Solutions in Great Yarmouth, a global provider of products, systems and services to the oil and gas industry, which often saw him work offshore.
