Tributes paid to Argyll paraglider

TRIBUTES have been paid after a former Lochgilphead man died in a paragliding accident in New Zealand.

Ben Letham, 26, had a love for the outdoors sparked in Argyll. He learned to surf on waves at Westport and Tangy beaches near Campbeltown and it is to these Kintyre winds some of Ben’s ashes will be returned.
