The body of a missing 43-year-old Shetland woman has been found by police divers.

Lorraine Grains was reported missing on Thursday from the Vidlin area.

The dive team had arrived from Aberdeen on Tuesday, and found the body of Ms Grains during searches in the Laxo area. Police Scotland said there were no suspicious circumstances.

A search involving the public, police, a coastguard helicopter, rescue teams and a lifeboat had failed to find her.

Insp Martyn Brill said: "Our thoughts are with Lorraine's family and friends at this very sad time.

"I would like to take the opportunity to thank the partner agencies and members of the public who have helped with our enquires and search activity."

A report will be submitted to the procurator fiscal.
