A body recovered from the sea off Orkney was that of a fisherman who fell overboard earlier this year.

Craig Reid, 25, from Inverness, was lost overboard from the Apollo on 18 April.

It happened about 20 miles off the coast, and a body was recovered 25 miles off Orkney on 31 July by a fishing boat.

A Police Scotland spokesperson said: "Our thoughts are with Mr Reid's family at this difficult time."
