Pensioner's body found on shore

An investigation has been launched after a pensioner's body was found on the foreshore of a Fife town.

The body of the elderly man was found at the north end of the Esplanade, which runs along Kirkcaldy's coast.

The Glenrothes man was recovered by Forth Coastguard just after lunchtime on Monday.

Fife Constabulary said there were no suspicious circumstances surrounding the man's death. A report will be submitted to the procurator fiscal.
