Four Britons Among Six Dead in Canada Plane Crash

Four Britons died when a seaplane crashed during a sightseeing trip in Canada, the Foreign Office has confirmed.

Five passengers and a pilot were killed when the Beaver aircraft they were in came down in woodland in the Les Bergeronnes area, in Quebec province.

A picture on the Transportation Safety Board of Canada's website shows the wreckage of the red and white aircraft on a rock edge next to thick woodland.

A Foreign Office spokeswoman said: "Sadly, four British nationals were on board the plane that crashed in Les Bergeronnes, Canada.

"Our deepest sympathies are with their friends and family at this difficult time.

"Our consular officers are ready to provide assistance and we will remain in contact with Canadian authorities regarding this tragic incident."
