Kirsty Aitchison's Body Found In River Clyde

A body found in the River Clyde has been confirmed as that of missing woman Kirsty Aitchison.

Firefighters recovered the body near the Kingston Bridge in Glasgow at around 4.30pm on Saturday.

The discovery was made close to an area police divers had swept earlier this week as officers search Ms Aitchison, missing since a night out in the city last Saturday.

The 30-year-old, who was deaf, had not been in contact with friends or family since she left Campus bar in Sauchiehall Street at about 3am last Sunday.

She was later spotted on CCTV at the Broomielaw near the River Clyde.

Police launched appeals in sign language and Ms Aitchison's mother Fay made a plea for information.

Officers said the body found in the Clyde has now been confirmed as that of the 30-year-old.

The death is not being treated as suspicious at this time.

Chief Inspector John McBride said: ''We would like to thank members of the public and the Deaf/BSL community for their support and assistance throughout this investigation.

''Our thoughts and condolences are with Kirsty's family and friends during this difficult time.''
