The widow of a man who died in a plane crash has visited Nepal on the first anniversary of his death.
Timothy Oakes, who worked for Lancashire County Council, was killed when a plane he was travelling on crash on September 28 last year.
Mr Oakes, from Winnick, near Warrington, was one of 19 people, seven of them British, killed on the Everest-bound flight.
The 57-year-old was about to start a 19-day trek when the plane crashed shortly after taking off from Kathmandu airport.
His widow Angela Gaunt visited Nepal one year on from the crash. A report published after the accident found that the plane had been overloaded when it crashed.
Mr Oakes, a mountaineer, worked for Lancashire County Council’s education department as a secondary schools advisor.
In the days following his death Ms Gaunt said that Mr Oakes had been on a “trip of a lifetime.”
Mr Oakes died alongside fellow Britons Raymond Eagle, 58, who lived in Macclesfield, Cheshire and worked with disabled people, Christopher Davey, 51, Vincent Kelly, 50, Darren Kelly, 45, Stephen Holding, 60, and Benjamin Ogden, 27, an up-and-coming lawyer from London.
Mr Oakes and Mr Holding were both members of the Bremex Mountaineering and Climbing Club.
