British tourist falls to death from Australia waterfall

A British tourist has died in Australia after falling from the top of a waterfall.

The 20-year-old man, who has not been named, is said to have fallen about 100 metres (300ft) at Wentworth Falls, west of Sydney, after slipping from rocks.

Police said a renewed effort will be made to retrieve the man's body after an earlier attempt failed due to strong winds.

Wentworth Falls, in the Blue Mountains, is a popular beauty spot. British tourist Peri Hann, who was at the waterfall around the time of the incident, spoke about what she saw to the BBC.
