Family tribute to mountaineer

The family of a man who was left paralysed after diving into the river dee to save a friends life will walk up snowdon to scatter his ashes.

44 year old Mark Boniface from Chester died from an infection in May. He was paralysed from the neck down when he leaped into rapids near Llangollen believing a friend was in trouble.
