A body recovered from the River Clyde in central Glasgow is believed to be that of a missing man from Dumbarton.

The body was recovered from near the South Portland Street Suspension Bridge at about 09:00 on Thursday.

BBC Scotland understands it is believed to be that of 23-year-old Michael Slaven, who was last seen in the city centre in the early hours of 30 August.

No formal identification has taken place but it is understood that his family have been informed.

Mr Slaven had been on a night out at the Sugar Cube nightclub, in the city's Queen Street, when he left alone in the early hours of Friday morning.

He was later seen at 02:30 on CCTV images outside St Enoch Subway Station.

A possible further sighting was reported near St Andrew's Cathedral, Clyde Street, at about 02:50.

Mr Slaven's family and friends have been engaged in a high-profile campaign to trace him since he was reported missing.
