An INVESTIGATION is under way after the body of a man was recovered from water off Fort William in Lochaber.

The man was found along the River Lochy shoreline between Inverlochy and An Aird, near to the Underwater Centre, at about 11am on Monday after a member of the public raised the alarm.

A seven-strong team from the coastguard at Corpach was scrambled to assist Northern Constabulary.

A police spokesman said: “Inquiries are under way to establish the identity of the
man and the circumstances of the death.

“If anyone has any information in relation to this, they are urged to contact police at Fort William on 01397 702361.”
