A 27-year-old former Buckingham man has been named as being among seven Britons who were killed in an air crash in Nepal this morning.

Benjamin Ogden, an Oxford graduate who worked for law firm Allen and Overy, had attended the Royal Latin School in Buckingham.

A twin-engine propellor aircraft was due to carry backpackers to the Everest region when it came down shortly after takeoff on the edge of the capital Kathmandu.

All 19 people on board died, including five Chinese nationals and seven Nepalis.

The other dead Britons were named by the Press Association as Raymond Eagle, 58, Christopher Davey, 51, Vincent Kelly, 50, and Darren Kelly, 45, Timothy Oakes, 57, and Stephen Holding, 60.
