Briton dies after boat capsizes
A British man has died and several other tourists are in hospital after a boat capsized in South Africa.
A Foreign Office spokesman confirmed the death of one British national at Hout Bay near the western city of Cape Town on Saturday afternoon.
"Several British nationals were also hospitalised following the incident, most of whom have now been released," the spokesman said.
The dead Briton has been named in media reports as Peter Hyett, 64, from the Vale of Glamorgan, South Wales.
His wife Suzanne, 63, and her daughter Helen, 37, from Bournemouth, survived the accident and were treated in hospital, reports say.
The family were holidaying in South Africa for two weeks and were due to return to the UK at the weekend.
There were also reports that two other British women on holiday were found clinging on beneath the boat by divers looking for bodies.
Lynette Hartmann, 55, and Bronwyn Armstrong, whose age is unknown, were believed to be trapped in an air pocket under the catamaran for nearly four hours before they were rescued.
The body of South African tour guide John Roberts was found after the rescue effort, reports say.
Craig Lambinon, of the National Sea Rescue Institute, said there were 38 people on board the charter boat Miroshga. At least 24 of the survivors were taken to hospital with serious or minor injuries and many of them were foreign nationals.
