Mountaineer feared dead in avalancheAN EXPATRIATE from Yorkshire is feared dead after he was caught in one of the biggest avalanches on record in Spain’s Sierra Nevada mountain range.

John Hogbin, 42, originally from York, was with two fellow mountaineers when the avalanche struck at 1.30pm on Sunday to the west of a ski resort above Granada city.

Chances of finding Mr Hogbin alive were “practically nil”, a Guardia Civil source said yesterday before the search was called off for the night. Mr Hogbin was a widower with a young son. The two other men, both 43 and believed to be Spanish, survived.
