Two divers have now died while exploring the popular dive sites of Scapa Flow in the Orkney Islands in the past 11 days, bringing a tragic close to the approaching ‘end’ of the British diving season.

In the latest incident in Scapa Flow, a 53-year-old – who has yet to be named – experienced problems while diving on the upturned 45m-deep World War One German battleship Markgraf. He was subsequently taken ashore by two Coastguard teams from Kirkwall and Stromness, but sadly died before reaching hospital.
