The body of a man found in the river at Muncaster, Ravenglass, has been identified as John Allen.

The 76-year-old from Preston went missing last month while walking his dog near Ravenglass Estuary. His body was found on Wednesday 15 May.

Police say his death is not being treated as suspicious.

His family are being supported at this difficult time.

World Owl Trust 'don't feel wanted' at Muncaster

The World Owl Trust say their current agreement with the estate managers is being terminated and unless they can negotiate new arrangements, they'll have to leave by May 2015.

The charity claims the new terms are not financially viable, but the estate say negotiations are ongoing and in tough financial times it's having to review the way the owl centre is run.

The Muncaster estate says it's willing to negotiate but the Trust says it's looking for new premises. Honorary President Tony Warbuton said: "the owl trust is looking for somewhere new to be based, we do not feel we are wanted anymore at Muncaster."
