A body found on a mountain in the Lake District has been formally identified as a missing North Yorkshire man.
James Lonsdale, 53, left his home in Selby on Tuesday morning to go walking on Scafell Pike.
When he failed to return, a search operation was carried out. A body was found in a waterfall pool near the Great Gable summit on Wednesday.
Police said they were not treating the death as suspicious and were continuing inquiries on behalf of the coroner.
Members of a number of Lake District mountain rescue teams, aided by an RAF helicopter, were involved in the search for Mr Lonsdale, whose vehicle was spotted parked at Wasdale Head.
