The operation to find two divers missing in Orkney has ended with no trace of the men.

The Dutch pair failed to surface from a dive on the wreck of the SMS Brummer in Scapa Flow last week, and an extensive air and sea search was launched.

A specialist team then carried out further searches over the weekend. Police said that no further searches were planned.

Scapa Flow is popular with divers due to the scuttled German Fleet.
