AN inquest has been opened into the death of a soldier discovered on a Welsh mountain range.

Captain Rob Carnegie, 30, of the Royal Signals, from Dublin died at Prince Charles Hospital in Merthyr several hours after being found on Corn Du, the second highest South Wales peak, at around 9.42pm on Saturday.

The inquest has now been adjourned to a later date.

His body was discovered on the Brecon Beacons over the weekend.

The Ministry of Defence said: "It's with great sadness that we can confirm that Captain Rob Carnegie of the Royals Signals has died in an incident in the Brecons Beacons.

"The soldier's family have been informed and are being supported. Our thoughts are with them at this difficult time.

"As is normal in circumstances such as this, the incident is being investigated and it would be inappropriate to comment further."
