Second Scapa Flow diving fatality in two weeks


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.
