Diver dies off Donegal coast

A Presbyterian clergyman from County Tyrone has died after getting into difficulties while diving off the County Donegal coast.

The Reverend Stewart Jones, who was in his 50s, died after being airlifted to Sligo Hospital yesterday.

The victim had been diving near St John's Point with another man from Derry who was also airlifted to hospital during the rescue operation.

The second man was unhurt.

Dr Jones, who was the Presbyterian chaplain at Altnagelvin Hospital, was a qualified diving instructor and also an instructor in emergency first response.

He was a published author and his works included Israel in the Carter Years, and British Policy in the Middle East.
