The death of an 18-year-old man, whose body was found in a pool of water at a disused quarry, is being linked to the ice bucket challenge.

It has been reported that Cameron Lancaster disappeared after jumping in to the water at Prestonhill Quarry in Inverkeithing, Fife.

Emergency services were called to the scene at 5pm on Sunday and a body was recovered after a four hour search.

Police Scotland have said inquiries are underway as to how exactly the teenager died but it is thought he may have been taking part in the ice bucket challenge, according to the BBC.

During his short life, he touched so many people with his friendliness, kindness and thoughtful generosity of spirit.
