Due to a change in technology it has been found that Ben Nevis is one metre (one yard) bigger than first thought.

It might have really because the earth breathes and mountains can get higher.
Although in the short space of time it took since last measurement it might not have gained a metre.
More likely is the original explanation that their instruments got it wrong first time round.

Two people have just been found dead on Ben Nevis.
They have been lost a few weeks.

If they have this new technology then be prepared for further adjustments in the height calculations of all the mountains around the world :thumbup:
