Body found where walker Oliver Smith went missing on Skye

The body of a man has been recovered from the Bla Bheinn area of the Cuillins on Skye.

Police said the family of missing hillwalker Oliver Smith has been informed.

A search involving mountain rescue and coastguards teams, as well as police search dogs, was carried out at that time.

A Police Scotland spokesman said arrangements were being made for formal identification.
