Awesome Walls in Stockport

55 year old Peter Schofield from Middlewich in Cheshire sustained serious injuries in a fall at Awesome walls in Stockport on December the 27th. He died a few days later on New year's Eve in hospital.

At present the precise cause of Peter's accident isn't known and Health and Safety are investigating. When their report is made public we will summarise the main findings. We would like to ask people not to speculate on the UKC Forums before the reason for the accident is made clear.

Peter was a long-time climber and mountaineer and was married with one daughter.

More Info: Daily Mirror Report.

We at UKC wish to pass on our condolences to the friends and family of Peter.

Terribly sad news. Condolences to friends and family. Give Quarryman a break- he's 15 yrs old and we were all a bit naive at that age.

Agreed. It wasn't malicious, just unthinking.

Seemed clear from the news item they would post when they had any info. My condolences to the family and friends.
