Police investigating the disappearance of a man from Scotland are in talks with Isle of Man Constabulary following the discovery of a body last week.

DNA tests are being carried out on a body which was found washed up on Dog Mills beach last Wednesday.

74-year-old Gavin Tait from Wigtown was reported missing on April 6th.

In a statement, Police Scotland said: "We are aware of the discovery of a man's body on a beach on the Isle of Man on Wednesday morning.
