A PLANE crash and assassination forms just half of the tale an adventurous Boston barista has to tell from an action-packed nine-day charity trek across the Himalayas which raised more than £1,500.

Peter Andrews (pictured), an employee at Costa Coffee, completed the challenge to raise money for the Costa Foundation.

He walked seven to eight hours a day with a group of five other people and finished at the top of Anna Purna, 4130 meters above sea level.

However, when he first landed, one of the trekking planes with the company he should have been doing it with crashed, killing 19 people.

Then after returning to his hotel in Kathmandu following a day wandering round markets and local sights, his group found out a Muslim leader had been assassinated in the city two hours prior.

Despite these two incidents Peter said he had a ‘fantastic time’.
