Elderly man dies at marina

A 78-YEAR-OLD man died at the Port Bannatyne marina in the early hours of Sunday.

Police were called to the marina at around 1.15am after a report that a man had fallen into the water; his body was recovered a short time later.

A report has been sent to the procurator fiscal, although there are not believed to be any suspicious circumstances surrounding the death; it is thought the man, who was understood to be visiting Bute on a yachting holiday in the area, may have died of natural causes before his body fell into the water.
