A scout who fell to his death on a trip would still be alive if the walk he was on had been properly planned, a police officer has told an inquest. 

Ben Leonard, 16, from Stockport, Greater Manchester, slipped 200ft (61m) from the Great Orme in Llandudno, Conwy, in August 2018.

Ben and two friends were walking away from the rest of the group when he slipped and fell, the inquest heard.
