A body has been recovered off the Yorkshire coast by police specialists who had been scouring the seabed for a missing diver since 12 July.

The team from the Yorkshire and Humberside Underwater Search and Marine Unit had been looking for a 74-year-old local man, who went missing on 8 July while diving with a group of Scarborough Sub Aqua Club members and non-members on the boat Francis Ann on a wreck some two miles off Raverscar.

At the time of his disappearance, a major search operation was initiated, involving RNLI lifeboats and a Coastguard helicopter, but after four days the specialist dive team were called in and began searching the seabed at 50m.
