Britons feared dead in Canadian seaplane crash

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office is reported to be "urgently working" with Canadian authorities to identify the victims of a seaplane crash.

Four Britons are feared to be among the six people who were killed when the aircraft came down during a sightseeing flight.

The Beaver seaplane took off on Sunday from Tadoussac, Quebec, on the north shore of the Gulf of Saint Lawrence.

It crashed shortly after in a wooded area in Les Bergeronnes.

Investigators have been hindered by bad weather and the inaccessible nature of the terrain.

Tadoussac is located about 310 miles northeast of Montreal.

Police said yesterday that all six passengers aboard the Air Saguenay plane had been found, according to the AP news agency.

An FCO spokesman said: "Following a plane crash in Les Bergeronnes, Canada, we are urgently working with local authorities to establish the identity of those on board."
