Police searching for the missing Co Antrim woman Nicola Murray have found a body.

In a statement on Saturday evening, Inspector Colin Shaw said the body was recovered from the water north of Campbeltown in Scotland in the afternoon.

The 43-year-old was last seen walking by the shoreline near Cushendall Golf Club last Saturday, March 16.

Over the past week dozens have assisted the RNLI, Coastguard, Community Rescue Service and police search miles of coastline, isolated beauty spots and areas of wasteland.

Inspector Colin Shaw said: “Nicola, who was 43 years old, was last seen leaving her home address in Cushendall at approximately 6:15pm on Saturday 16 March.

“A post mortem will be carried out to determine the cause of death, however, we are not treating it as suspicious at this time.

“Police would like to thank everyone involved in the search for Nicola."
