A Spanish speleologist has died in a caving accident in the Eastern Pyrenees in France.
It happened on Saturday afternoon in a cave system near Opoul, at a depth of between 130 and 150 metres.
The 51 year old victim, who has not been named, was part of a group from the Granollers Speleologist Club, in Barcelona. He was with two companions, who escaped the accident uninjured.
The only information on what happened is that he may have been caught in a rock fall.
The area the group were exploring is described as unstable.
