The death of a man who fell more than 60ft (18m) down a waterfall was an accident, a coroner has ruled.

Daniel Davies died during a visit to High Force in Forest-In-Teesdale, County Durham, on 6 May.
An inquest heard that the 30-year-old, from Lambton Terrace in Jarrow, South Tyneside, was collecting rocks for his new fish tank at the top of the falls.
He lost his balance, and the water dragged him over the edge despite his friend's attempt to grab him.
The following day his body was recovered close to the base of the waterfall by police divers.
A pathologist said that he had suffered head injuries, but the cause of death was by drowning.
County Durham deputy coroner Brenda Davidson recorded a verdict of accidental death, calling it a "very tragic accident".
