Ben Nevis snow free for first time in 11 years

Snow expert, Iain Cameron, confirms that for the first time in 11 years there is no snow on Britain's highest mountain, Ben Nevis.

Across Scotland, only three patches of snow survive in Scotland's mountains - one on Aonach Beag in Lochaber and two on Braeriach in the Cairngorms – but these could also vanish by the middle of September, for the first time since 2006.

Mr Cameron, said: "The situation this year is mainly down to a lack of snow last winter.”
