A body found this morning has formally been identified as missing west Cumbrian man Ged Doran.

Mr Doran disappeared from the Salterbeck in Workington last week.

Hundreds of people came out to join officers to search fields between High Harrington and Workington.

Over the week extensive search parties involving helicopter, coastguard, mountain rescue volunteers and divers helped to find Ged.

The circumstances around his death are not believed to be suspicious at this stage.

Police would like to thank the thousands of people who shared the appeal on social media.
