The body of missing hillwalker Kyle Knox has been found by a Royal Navy helicopter conducting a search of the Glen Nevis area.

He was discovered in Surgeon's Gully area, to the south east of Ben Nevis.

The 23-year-old, from London, had been reported missing on 31 March, after he failed to return to his accommodation in Fort William.

His next of kin have been informed and a report will be sent to the procurator fiscal.

Mr Knox had last been seen at about 10:00 on 30 March in the Glen Nevis area of Lochaber. It is believed he was planning to ascend Ben Nevis.

A previous search, immediately after Mr Knox's disappearance, had been suspended due to bad weather.
