Tributes after Scout tragedy

AN investigation has been launched after a 14-year-old Scout from East Renfrewshire died while on an adventure holiday in Italy.

Tributes have been paid to Elliot Peacock, of Eastwood District Scouts, who lost consciousness as he jumped into water during a gorge scrambling activity in the Gran Paradiso National Park in the north of the country.

His parents have flown to Italy to identify their son's body and bring him home.
