  1. Cambridge student 'fell to death in Lakes running game'

    A Cambridge University student probably fell to his death during an unofficial Lake District running game, Cumbria's senior coroner has concluded.

    John Grenfell-Shaw, 25, from Bristol, was taking part in a game of hares and hounds, with the latter chasing the former over rough ground.

    The inquest in Cockermouth heard that on Haystacks, a fell nearly 2,000ft (600m) high, he went down a gully which runners had been advised was dangerous and to be avoided.

    About 25 people were taking part in the game.

    Mr Grenfell-Shaw, described as a fit and capable runner and climber, was last seen at 11:30 on 5 July, and a search began involving mountain rescue volunteers and his friends after he was reported missing.

    His body was found in the gully and the coroner, Sally Cheema, concluded he had died from a traumatic head injury having fallen a considerable distance as a result of an accident.
