Man dies after boat capsizes

A young man has died after a boat capsized in a lake, police said.

The body of Lee Rogers, 20, from Enniskillen in Co Fermanagh, Northern Ireland, was recovered from Lough Erne today after the boat capsized yesterday.

Five males were rescued after the vessel turned over, but Mr Rogers was not initially found and police and coastguards initiated a search for him.

The Police Service of Northern Ireland said specialist underwater rescue teams searched the area along with volunteers from the North West Search and Rescue team.
