Body of banker in death plunge lay undiscovered for 4 days

Carnation

The body of a banker who plunged to his death from a mountain in the Lake District lay undiscovered for four days after hotel staff failed to notice he was missing, an inquest heard last week.

The Daily Mail reports that Michael Flanagan, 45, suffered fatal injuries when he fell from the 950 metre high Helvellyn mountain while walking alone on a short break to the Lake District in January this year.

The New Zealander, who lived in Wimbledon, south west London, was only found after staff at the four star Macdonald Old England Hotel & Spa, Bowness, noticed he failed to check out.

Flanagan, the head of foreign exchange institutional sales at National Australia Bank, had left a note at the hotel before heading out on his hike at England's third highest peak, on January 8.
