Four Britons and a French tourist have been killed in a plane crash in a remote part of Quebec in Canada, it has been reported.

The Air Sanguenay plane crashed on Sunday 23 August on Quebec's isolated North Shore. The victims have not been named.

The plane went down in a wooded area on Sunday afternoon, and authorities announced late on Monday that all six people aboard had died.

According to The Telegraph, four of the victims were British.

Jean Tremblay, vice-president of the airline, said the DeHavilland Beaver seaplane was on a routine sightseeing flight, taking off from Tadoussac, around 250 miles from Montreal.

The flight was only supposed to last 20 minutes and conditions were excellent at the time of the crash, the official said.

Speaking to Radio Canada, Mr Tremblay said the pilot had 14 years of experience at the airline.
