A woman's body recovered from the River Clyde in Glasgow is thought to be that of missing woman Yasmin McLaughlin.

The 46-year-old, who police described as "vulnerable", had been missing from her home in the Ruchill area of the city since 1 March.

Strathclyde Police said a woman's body was recovered from the river, near to Mavisbank Gardens, at 17:40 on Monday.

The force said that although the body had not yet been formally identified, it was believed to be Ms McLaughlin.

Police said that her relatives had been informed and a post-mortem examination would be held to establish the exact cause of death.

Her death is not being treated as suspicious. A report will be sent to the procurator fiscal.
