Two fishermen, feared lost off the Aberdeenshire coast, have been found safe and well after two days in the North Sea.

Jim Reid, who is 75, and his 35-year-old grandson David Irvine had been reported missing on Tuesday.

The men, from Inverbervie, were rescued by a passing fishing boat after a large-scale search was called off early on Thursday morning.
