Man dies at Lakeside darts

DARTS: A man who went to Lakeside to watch the BDO world championship was yesterday found dead under the frozen lake at the tournament’s venue.

“It’s a tragedy,” said Robert Holmes of the British Darts Organisation. “A body was taken from the lake and it was someone who had been here to watch the darts. The weather has played a major part in this.”

The water at the centre of the complex, which has frozen over, has now been fenced off.
