The body of a man has been found in a disused Lake District quarry.

The 30-year-old man was spotted jumping "from height" into the water at Hodge Close Quarry, Coniston, Cumbria Police said.

The force was contacted at about 17:45 BST on Tuesday and the body was found late in the evening after a search.


The site is popular with abseilers and divers.
