The body of a pensioner who has not been seen for a week has been found in a field near a busy dual carriageway in Paisley.

Matthew Jardine, 72, had been last seen on Tuesday 24 August leaving a shop near his home in Anchor Drive.

The body was found about a mile away in a field close to Blackstoun Road, just yards away from the A737.

A post-mortem examination will be carried out and a report will be submitted to the procurator fiscal.
