Across The Capital
A canoeist who died after getting into difficulties on the Firth of Forth has been named by Lothian and Borders police.
29-year-old Michael Tattersall from Edinburgh was on the water with a group of swimmers and kayakers near Granton on Sunday night when a small number of people got into trouble.
A rescue operation was launched after a member of the group swam to shore and raised the alarm. A RAF rescue helicopter lifted Tattersall from the water at around 1am on Monday morning but he later died in hospital.
A second canoeist was also picked up by the helicopter and a swimmer reported to be having difficulties managed to swim to the shore.
Rescue teams including lifeboat crews and the coastguard remain unsure how the situation came about.
