Police searching for a man missing in the River Tees have found a body.

They've confirmed that divers found Wadud Abdul's body near to the spot where he'd been swimming at Low Force yesterday.

The teacher, from Newcastle, had been on a day out with his family to celebrate his 36th birthday.

Emergency services were called out at 3.30pm yesterday afternoon after reports a man had got into difficulty in the water.
