Michael Todd , the mystery walkers and the mystery rucksack and the mystery bottle of gin and the mystery bottle of champagne
Alan Rimmer and Andrew Chapman filed a story 'Suicide' police chief: Why didn't they call us earlier ask rescue services? in today's Mail on Sunday
A car smash and bracing walk produced a cocktail of concern about one feature of the story ....
The helicopter that brought down the 2 walkers then took up ..."a local police officer and a member of our team flew back up the mountain in the helicopter to Bwlch Glas where the rucksack had been found. They found Mr Todd's body almost immediately."
It is an absolutely foul day, the worst storm on Snowdon in ten years and two walkers find a rucksack.
With freezing fingers they call 999
"We are on Snowdon near the summit and have found a discarded rucksack."
" What do you want us to do ?"
" Well we thought you ought to know"
" Thank you, bring the rucksack down with you and we will be delighted to put it in lost property"
