Unconfirmed reports are that three Derbyshire mountaineers who have been missing for several days in Nepal have returned safely to base camp.

Nigel Vardy, of Belper, (pictured above) was climbing Himlung Himal in Nepal with husband and wife Jamie and Clare Glazebrook, of Sutton Scarsdale, near Chesterfield, when they were swallowed by the snow storm.

When the blizzard hit the mountain range a few days ago, contact was lost with the trio.

Twenty-nine people are known to have been killed in the blizzard.
