A spokesman for the park confirmed Mr Foster’s identity, while his wife – who was also hiking – was injured and remains in hospital. It has been reported that her injuries were critical.

They were crushed by falling rocks. They are the only known casualties despite being with a group of other climbers when the series of collapses struck, but a search is ongoing.

Tessa did such a great job, as everyone at Vertebrate Publishing have done and who are, of course, still doing. My initial draft was words, the final draft is approximately 95 words which means there are a load of prose not included. So on a run-up to Tides being published, I thought I publish some out-takes here as a bit of a teaser.
