A special educational needs teacher tragically died after falling from 150ft after she became lost while searching for a Snowdonia 'infinity pool' she had seen on TikTok.
An inquest into the death of Victoria Naomi Luck, 47, held this week heard how she had been out hiking with her partner Matthew Radnor, who had taken her away to Betws-y-Coed in Wales for the weekend from their home in Wolverhampton as an early Christmas present last year.
The inquest heard that she had expressed an interest in visiting the famous infinity pool near the Llanberis Pass, having seen it on TikTok.

The pair were climbing the mountain with their dog when they got lost.
They decided to descend in different directions in an attempt to find their way down, with Mr Radnor taking a route which was easier for their dog to navigate.
"I saw the infinity pool on TikTok and showed it to her, she was quite taken with it and thought it looked amazing so we decided to go," Mr Radnor said in a statement.
The inquest also heard that, during the walk, the pair did not have a map and were not using a navigation system on their mobile phones.

In an attempt to get down, Radnor said that Luck had climbed down into a gully and said she would carry on walking down that way while he and their dog, Louis, went to find an easier route.
He said that within a few minutes, he heard Miss Luck "yelp", but did not witness her fall.
Radnor added: "I called 999 on my mobile, but my battery ran out when I was on to Mountain Rescue. I didn't know where I was."
He proceeded to alert other walkers in the area there had been an incident when he began shouting for help.
Shortly after a coastguard rescue helicopter from Caernarfon and Llanberis mountain rescuers arrived at the scene and Luck was put on board the aircraft but sadly died from her injuries
