Body recovered after boat capsized on Lough Erne

A man's body has been recovered from Lough Erne after a boat capsized yesterday.

A search operation was underway yesterday evening when it became apparent that one person was still missing after the rescue of five from the water in Co Fermanagh.

The search was brought to a halt when the body of 20-year-old Lee Rogers from the Enniskillen area was found this morning.

A number of Enniskillen RNLI lifeboats were involved in the search along with an Irish Coast Guard helicopter and a PSNI boat.

The boat capsized on the water near Portara Boat Club at approximately 6pm yesterday evening.
