A man has died and another was injured on a diving trip in the North Sea off the Norfolk coast.
Seven people were thought to be on the boat during a dive which police described as "recreational rather than industrial".
Police met the dive boat as it returned to Hamilton Dock in Lowestoft, Suffolk.
One of the divers was airlifted to the James Paget Hospital at Gorleston at 15:30 BST but he died. His death is being treated as "unexplained".
A lifeboat brought a second diver ashore at Gorleston and he was also taken to the hospital.
Police, working with the coastguard and the Health and Safety Executive, said an investigation is under way.
