Police using dogs have made new searches for a man who was seen falling from a bridge in Inverness last month.

The man from Poland, who has not been named by police, went into the River Ness at the Greig Street Bridge on 31 January.

Police Scotland said officers and dogs made shoreline searches of the River Ness and Inner Moray Firth. A police helicopter was also involved.

The missing man is in his 40s and was wearing dark clothing.

Police said officers were in contact with his family in Poland.

RNLI Kessock and coastguard crews searched the river and Inverness' harbour and marina at the time of the incident.
