9:35 pm on 19 July 2012

Police in Scotland say a body found floating in a loch on the country's west coast is no longer thought to be that of a New Zealander.

It was thought a man found off the Isle of Lismore in Loch Linnhe last Friday might be a tourist because he had wallet with a New Zealand fern logo, but police now say he is believed to be British.

Inquiries into the death are continuing.
