A SCUBA diver from Huddersfield has died in a tragic accident.
Carl Morris has been found dead in the deepest lake in England.
Almondbury property developer Mr Morris – known as Badger by his friends – went missing during a diving excursion in Cumbria at about 3pm last Sunday.
The 39-year-old, who worked part-time as a diving instructor, was diving with a group of three people in Wastwater when he failed to surface from the 40-minute dive.
Police set up a large search and rescue mission, including specialist teams from the coastguard, fire and rescue, mountain rescue and members of the North West Police Underwater Search Team.
Divers worked through Sunday night but other teams had to be stood down after dark due to dangerous conditions.
His body was recovered by the Underwater Search Team during a major multi-agency search.
The search operation had involved a helicopter from RAF Valley as well as Cumbria police, Whitehaven Coastguard, Cumbria Fire and Rescue Service and Wasdale Mountain Rescue Team.
It was launched on Sunday after the alarm was raised by Mr Morris’ colleagues.
