A spokesman for Grampian Police said today: “Police can confirm the identity of the woman found dead on the shore at Johnshaven on Thursday, 28 February, as (Jane) Janie Thomson, 55, from Kirriemuir.

There were no suspicious circumstances.”

He added: “Janie’s family have asked that their privacy be respected at this difficult time.”
