The body of a man missing for more than a fortnight has been recovered from the River Clyde.

Father-of-three George Glackin, 43, from East Kilbride, South Lanarkshire, had been missing since 18 September.

The construction supervisor's body was recovered from the river, near Clyde Street, on Friday afternoon.

Police said there were no suspicious circumstances surrounding Mr Glackin's death.

Mr Glackin, a keen fisherman and walker, had last been seen in The Spirit pub on Glasgow's London Road.

His family appealed for information about his whereabouts after Mr Glackin, who was partially sighted and required daily medication, was reported missing.

A Strathclyde Police spokeswoman said: "A post-mortem will be carried out in due course to establish the exact cause of death.

"A full report will be sent to the procurator fiscal."
