A body recovered from the Aberdeenshire shoreline after a boat capsized has been identified as missing 18-year-old Jake Miller.

Mr Miller, from Turriff, was in a small boat with two friends at night when it overturned between Banff and Whitehills. His friends swam ashore.

Grampian Police earlier said the body of a man had been found on the shore at Whitehills.

The force has now confirmed it was Mr Miller.

He went missing off the coast after an accident in the early hours of 24 June.

His two friends managed to swim to rocks between Banff and Whitehills and raise the alarm shortly before 0100 BST.

The boat was recovered but after extensive air, sea and coastal searches there was no sign of Mr Miller.
