A Royal Navy diver has died while on a routine training exercise off Scotland's west coast.
The diver was based at Faslane
The 36-year old man, who has not been named, was on duty off Oban, Argyll, when the tragedy occurred.
He was a member of the Royal Navy's Northern Diving Group, which is attached to HM Naval Base Clyde.
Strathclyde Police said there were no suspicious circumstances and it is
believed the man suffered a heart attack.
The incident happened at about 1200 GMT.
A spokeswoman for the Royal Navy said: "It was a routine training exercise
that we often do in that area.
"He was doing what is known as a buddy dive with a number of other divers and
the exercise was being supervised."
Among the duties carried out by the Northern Diving Group is the disposal of
mines discovered at sea.
Police have carried out an investigation into the incident and a report will
be submitted to the procurator fiscal.
