A man's body has been found in the harbour at Eyemouth in the Scottish Borders.

A member of the public made the discovery on Sunday, Lothian and Borders Police said.

Detectives have been searching the area for 19-year-old Jamie Battison, who was last seen outside the Ship Inn pub in Harbour Road on 7 August.

His family has been made fully aware of the circumstances of the body find, officers said.

Mr Battison, of Coldingham, was last seen at about 00:30 BST, and police said concern was growing for his safety as he had failed to make contact with family or friends.

Posters and leaflets have been handed out in Eyemouth appealing for information.
