Two divers have died after getting into difficulty in waters off Barra in the Outer Hebrides.

They were reported missing by a ferry boat skipper in Castlebay at 11:20 on Saturday after their boat was left unmanned and they failed to resurface.

One of the men has been named locally as Iain MacDougall, 39, who is from Barra. The other man is thought to have been his friend who was visiting.

The men's bodies were recovered by the Barra lifeboat at about 13:00.

Mr MacDougall is thought to have had diving experience.

Police Scotland said inquiries were at an early stage to establish the full circumstances of the deaths.
