Body found in search for missing kayaker

A body has been found in the search for missing kayaker Dominic Jackson.

The body, which has not yet been confirmed as Mr Jackson, was found near Lybster in Caithness, where his kayak was discovered earlier this week.

A phone was later found in an airtight compartment of his kayak, with the last photos taken around Portsoy harbour, where he set off from.

His sister said earlier today that she was “praying for a miracle” as the search for her brother entered its fourth day.

Formal identification is yet to take place but Mr Jackson’s family, many of whom were in the area to help with the search, have been informed of this latest development.

More to follow.
