|Canoeist dies in gorge accident |
(about 22 hours later)
A canoeist has died after his canoe overturned and got stuck in a gorge on the River Roy in the Highlands.
The man, who is understood to come from Kent, was eventually freed by members of his group.
He was treated by Scottish Ambulance Service staff but was pronounced dead at the scene at about 1500 BST on Friday.
Northern Constabulary said no further details were being released until next of kin had been informed.
Lochaber Mountain Rescue Team also attended due to the remote and inaccessible location of the incident.
The area has been hit by recent storms and floods making rivers particularly fierce.
