Police say a post-mortem examination will be carried out on a body found in the sea near St Abbs in the Scottish Borders last week.

The body of the man, believed to be a diver, had been in the water for some time.

It is thought to be unlikely it will be positively identified within the next few weeks.

It is understood that DNA testing will be carried out in order to help with the identification process.
