A 68-year-old has died after getting into difficulties whilst diving off Bressay.
A second man, aged 52, was taken to the Gilbert Bain Hospital in Lerwick following the incident but has since been discharged.
Emergency services were called to the scuba diving support vessel Valhalla after the men got into difficulties on Monday shortly after 4pm.
The Sumburgh-based search and rescue helicopter airlifted one casualty to the Clickimin landing site, from where the man was taken to hospital.
