A diving trip ends in tragedy for a Tavistock couple.

A woman in her fifties has died and her husband is critical at Derriford.

It happened at a flooded quarry in the Forest of Dean at the weekend.

An investigation is starting into what went wrong at the National Diving and Activity Centre at Tidenham on Saturday.

The Health and Safety Executive has been told.

A spokesperson for Gloucestershire police said: "Gloucestershire Police are investigating the death of a female diver at the National Diving Centre, Chepstow, over the weekend.

"Police were called just before midday on Saturday after an incident involving a woman and man from Devon who were diving with a friend, who is an instructor but she was not diving in this capacity.

"The woman who is in her fifties died at the scene. The man, her husband, was taken to a decompression unit in Plymouth. He is now in hospital in a critical but stable condition.

"Officers are working with the Health and Safety Executive to investigate this unexplained death but it is believed not to be suspicious.

"We are not investigating the dive centre."
