The grieving parents of a teenager who plunged sixty feet to his death in Cornwall say four more people are alive today because of him.

A coroner has ruled Toby Hart slipped while out rock climbing on the first day of his holiday in Cadgwith, as he tried to protect his little brother.

An inquest was told he was trying to ensure the eleven year old was not too close to the edge when a patch of grass gave way.

The sixteen year old's parents donated his organs and say they do not want what has happened to put other children off going climbing.

Dad Graham praised locals for rallying around them: "We've potentially made lifelong friends from complete strangers. Literally up until the accident we knew nobody down here.

"We feel like we know everybody now."
