Body found in Loch Tay identified as Darren Gilpin

Police have confirmed that a body recovered from Loch Tay is that of missing canoeist Darren Gilpin.

The 29-year-old, of Edinburgh, was on the water with another man when their canoe capsized on Saturday evening.

His friend made it to the shore of the Perthshire loch, near Killin, and raised the alarm.

A major police search of the shoreline and water with helicopter support eventually turned up the body on Sunday night.

    Disappointment for wrestling twins 13:22: John Barnes BBC Scotland

    There was disappointment for the 45-year-old Robertson twins Donna and Fiona in the 48kg Wrestling, with defeats at the quarter final stage. However Fiona still has the chance of a bronze medal.

    Donna lost to Rebecca Muambo of Cameroon 11-0 in the quarters.

    Fiona lost 4-0 to Yana Rattigan of England at the same stage.

    With Rattigan beating Muambo in the semi-final it means, via the repechage route, Fiona Robertson will take on Muambo for the bronze medal this evening.

    She will be hoping she can perform better than her sister did against the Cameroon wrestler this morning.

    Most inspiring moment? 12:47: Marianne Taylor BBC Scotland news

    What do you think has been the most inspiring moment of Glasgow 2014 so far?

    It's almost impossible to pick just one, but if I had to it'd be 13-year-old Shetland swimmer Erraid Davies's amazing bronze medal-winning performance at Tollcross on Sunday night.

    Away from the sporting arenas, watching four-year-old twins Ollie and Caleb and their wee sister Phoebe, aged two, recreate each Games event at their home in Aberdeen, filmed lovingly by mum Aly and dad Dave, melted my heart too.

    Legia Warsaw 'step up' 09:25:

    John Collins

    "We watched them last week in Dublin. Good team - they scored four goals so at this stage of the tournament you're not going to play against any mugs. There's no doubt it's a step up in quality from Reykjavik.

    "It's better to play them away from home first then get them back to Murrayfield. But we're going to have to play well - they're organised, they're quite quick and they score goals."

    Celtic's match tomorrow kicks off at 19:45, with the return leg in Edinburgh on 6 August.

    Travel round-up 08:11:

    If you are coming to Glasgow by train, Central, Argyle Street, Queen Street, Exhibition Centre and Mount Florida stations are all going to be extremely busy.

    And don't forget it takes about 15 minutes - probably longer given the crowds - to walk to Hampden from the Battlefield area where the railway station is.

    You can also get to the athletics at Hampden by shuttle bus from Shield Road subway station and Buchanan Bus Station, or take the scheduled services 4, 5, 6 or 7.

    Cathkin Braes Country Park is hosting the mountain biking competition from this afternoon, with shuttle buses dropping off and picking up on the south-bound Carmunnock Road where one lane will be closed. Factor in about 40 minutes or so to get to the spectator plaza.

    Drivers on the M8, M77 and M74 should also expect very busy morning and afternoon peaks with J15 and J19 on the M8, the M8/M74 interchange and M74 at J1A expected to be particularly busy.

    Last night at the Games 07:22: Graham Fraser BBC Scotland

    Last night, Libby Clegg experienced the Hampden roar with a gold medal in the T12 100m final.

    Her success meant Scotland has equalled its best total medal haul at any Commonwealth Games ever, with 33 medals.

    Libby Clegg wins gold at Glasgow 2014

    Earlier, Team Scotland set a new national record for Commonwealth gold medals following lawn bowls success for Alex Marshall and Paul Foster. That win in the men's pairs event took them to the 12-gold mark, surpassing the tally at Melbourne in 2006.

    So today could be a very special day for Team Scotland. Any more medal success, of any colour, for the men and women in blue and white will make Glasgow 2014 that extra bit special for everyone in the team.

    Weather outlook 07:00: Christopher Blanchett BBC Weather presenter

    It'll be a cloudy start for most, with any early sunshine confined to the east coast. Through the morning this brighter weather fades as cloud rolls in from the west. There'll be some very light outbreaks of rain or drizzle initially for the spine of Scotland and further west - but most will have a dry and cloudy morning.

    Through the day it improves, brightening up with sunny spells developing across central and eastern Scotland, though always staying that bit more cloudy for western parts with showers on the west coast and through the Hebrides.

    A brisk westerly breeze adding to a fresher feel compared with yesterday. Highs of 18C in the west and 21C in the east under sunnier skies.

    For a full forecast go to the BBC Weather website.
