A teenage boy has died after getting into difficulty in Loch Lomond.

A major search was launched on Friday after a report of concern for a person in the water.

Divers, the coastguard, the fire service and the Loch Lomond Rescue Boat were involved in the operation after the alarm was raised just after 19:00.

Emergency services recovered a young male from the water who was pronounced dead at the scene.

The focus of the search was the water near the pier at Balloch Country Park.

Police say formal identification has still to take place but the family of a 16-year-old boy has been informed.

There are not believed to be any suspicious circumstances and a report will be sent to the procurator fiscal.
