Scottish police have found a body, thought to be that of missing Dutchman Cornelius van der Wetering, in woods near the Highland village of Tomich.

Van der Wetering, 54, disappeared a week ago while on a walking holiday. According to website Highland News, he may have been planning to walk the Affric Kintail Way, a popular long-distance hike which is usually completed in two or three days.

A police spokeswoman said there are no suspicious circumstances and that they are in contact with the family.
