Missing fishermen found safe and well

Two Inverbervie fishermen who have been missing out at sea since Tuesday morning have been found safe and well.

James Reid (75) and his grandson David Irvine (35) failed to return to Gourdon harbour from a fishing expedition on Tuesday.

They were found by passing vessel the Sylvia Bowers from Buckie, approximately 46 miles off the coast of Montrose.

Their boat, the Water Rail, was reported overdue on Tuesday 20 May and searches have been made by the Coastguard, Royal Air Force, lifeboats, fishing boats and the Police Scotland helicopter.

Arrangements are currently being made to repatriate the men with their families.
