Three British tourists have died while climbing waterfalls in Lam Dong, Vietnam, the BBC has reported.

The bodies of one man and two women, aged 19 and 25, have been recovered at the Datanla waterfalls in the central Lam Dong province—a popular tourist spot.

The cause of death is unknown. Local news reported that the visitors could have slipped while exploring the waterfalls, and that the bodies were found wearing life jackets.

The British Foreign Office said: "We are in contact with local authorities in Ho Chi Minh City, following an incident near Da Lat, Vietnam."
