A FORMER Stratford School teacher  has fallen to his death from Snowdon.

Alan Froud fell from a narrow ridge known as Crib Goch, in the Snowdonia national park, late last month.

The 72-year-old was reported by the Llanberis Mountain Rescue Team, to have fallen ‘a considerable distance’.

An air ambulance was sent to the scene but Mr Froud had died from his injuries.

A Llanberis Mountain Rescue Team spokesperson said: “Unfortunately, the walker was found not to have survived their injuries. The team would like to pass on our sincere condolences to family and friends at what must be a very difficult time.”

Stratford School has paid tribute.

A spokesperson said: “Stratford School was very sad to hear that Alan Froud tragically died on a walking trip in Snowdonia. He was a maths teacher at this school and keen walker.

“Alan’s mild manner and easy going approach made him popular with his students. The school sends their sincere condolences to his family and close friends.”
