Four Britons Named in Canada Whale Boat Sinking

The family of a British woman who died after a whale-watching boat sank off the coast of Canada have said she was a "vibrant, outgoing and lovely young woman".

Katie Taylor, 29, was among five Britons killed when the boat overturned near Vancouver Island on Sunday.

In a statement issued by the Foreign Office, her family said: "Katie was a vibrant, outgoing and lovely young woman. She will be very much missed by all of her family and many friends.

"We would ask that you respect our privacy at such a difficult time."
