Residents in Edinburgh where hundreds of people joined the search for a missing three-year-old boy are "devastated" at the discovery of a body, a local councillor says.

Councillor Cammy Day praised the work of the police and the "community spirit" which saw so many join the search for Mikaeel Kular.

The body was found in Fife shortly before midnight on Friday. His mother, Rosdeep, has been detained by police.
