Man, 64, pulled from the water after a mayday call was issued to vessels in the area.
A 64-year-old diver has died after he was recovered from Scapa Flow near Orkney.
The Martitime and Coastguard Agency launched a rescue operation at 4pm on Friday after a boat north-east of Cava Lighthouse reported the man was 15 minutes overdue.
A mayday call was issued to vessels in the area to look out for the recreational diver.
Stromness and Kirkwall coastguard teams, a search and rescue helicopter from Sumburgh and a Longhope RNLI lifeboat were involved in the search.
Police Scotland confirmed the diver was recovered by a lifeboat at 5.30pm but pronounced dead a short time later.
