According to the Mirror, Adam said that when they got up to leave Hannah, from Uttoxeter, Staffs, slipped and plunged to the foot of the waterfall.

Following her tragic death, he took to Instagram to pay tribute to his ‘soul mate’.

In April, he posted: “Today I lost my soul mate, my partner in crime, my absolute rock. Words can’t begin to explain the pain I’m feeling right now but I’m honoured to have shared what time we had.

“I will spend the rest of my life making you proud and making myself a better person, you lifted me up and made me what I am in dark times and in happy times.

“I will love you forever, sleep tight my darling, until I see you again.”

Hannah was an experienced hill walker and climber, having taken on some of Britain’s biggest mountains with her family and boyfriend.

The Kinder Downfall is a famous waterfall located on the edge of Kinder Scout in the Peak District.

Derbyshire Assistant Coroner Emma Serrano concluded an accidental death and an investigation found there was no evidence to suggest any suspicious circumstances.
