BBC studio manager from Thornton Heath dies in Snowdonia mountain fall
A BBC studio manager from Thornton Heath has died after falling from a cliff in Snowdonia.
David March fell from up to 330ft (100m) above Devil's Kitchen in the Ogwen Valley at about 6pm on October 12.
The alarm was raised by a party of five walkers in the area, who saw Mr March fall on to the path.
The 36-year-old was an experienced walker who was a regular visitor to Snowdonia.
He had worked for the BBC for 15 years, working for the languages' production team at Busch House, before moving to the World Service's new premises at New Broadcasting House last year.
Devil's Kitchen known a Twll Du (Black Hole) in Welsh, is a well known route above Cwm Idwal in the Ogwen Valley, that marks a crack in rocks that can be climbed to reach the Glyder range of peaks and Y Garn.
The route can be challenging for many walkers, particularly if there is poor weather and mist.
Chris Lloyd from Ogwen Valley Mountain Rescue Team, told the BBC at the time: "It looks as though this individual made a navigational error in low cloud and walked off a cliff.
"It is an unfortunate tragic accident."
