A climber has died after achieving his ambition of conquering Mount Everest, the British Embassy in Nepal has said.
Experienced climber David Sharp, 34, of Guisborough, Teesside, was on his way down from the world's highest mountain when he got into difficulties.
His body was found in a cave by other climbers on Wednesday, 1,000ft below the summit.
Mr Sharp, who was making the attempt alone, was on his third climb of the 29,028ft mountain.
On Thursday, 42 people made it to the summit as the Everest season entered its busiest spell.
