Woman diver found dead in Loch Sunart

Police have confirmed that a woman diver has died in Loch Sunart in Ardnamurchan.

The alarm was raised at 1230 BST when the woman failed to surface from the dive in the west Highlands loch.

The Tobermory Lifeboat and a rescue helicopter from HMS Gannet were joined in the search by about 20 vessels which were in the area at the time - as well as coastguard teams.

The woman's body was found just after 1640 BST.

A Northern Constabulary spokesman said a report would be submitted to the Procurator Fiscal.
