First Swine flu death outside of the Americas is in Scotland

It is very sad to hear, but someone in Scotland has died of swine flu.

That said they did have "underlying health problems" apparently. We now nothing else about them.

Swine flu seems to be very easy to pass from person to person so almost impossible to contain but at this seems to be fairly mild killing relatively few. This will remain the case provided that it does not get mixed with more bird flu.

The BBC has this.
