A man has died in a diving accident off the Co Donegal coast.

A group of divers were around four nautical miles off Malin Head when one of the divers, a polish man, got into difficulty.

The Irish Coast Guard helicopter airlifted the man to Altnagelvin hospital in Co Derry.

He was pronounced dead there later.

He is the second diver to die this weekend after a man died while diving near Roches Point at the entrance to Cork Harbour.
