Teenager dies in quarry pool plunge

A teenager has died after plunging into a pool at a disused quarry.

Police were called to Prestonhill Quarry, in Inverkeithing, Fife, shortly before 5pm after receiving a report that a male had disappeared under the water.

The 18-year-old died at the scene and, following a multi-agency operation also involving the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service and the Scottish Ambulance Service, his body was recovered at around 9pm.

A police spokesman said: "Inquiries are under way to establish the full circumstances of what happened and Police Scotland's thoughts are with the family at this very difficult time."
