Selkirk river body discovery identified

Police have identified a man whose body was discovered in a Borders river at the weekend.

He has been named as Stuart Hannah, 27, from Selkirk.

Police were called to the town's Ettrick Water at about 11:00 on Sunday after a person out walking spotted a body in the nearby Philiphaugh Burn.

A spokesman for the Lothian and Borders force said there appeared to be no suspicious circumstances and a report would be sent to the procurator fiscal.
