An elderly man found dead on the shoreline in Kirkcaldy has been identified.

The body was found by a member of the public on the Esplanade opposite the old Kirkcaldy Swimming Pool, at 1.25pm on Thursday.

Police appealed for information in a bid to identify the man, and later confirmed he was a 91-year-old from Fife.

The man's immediate next of kin have been informed.

A police spokesman said enquiries were continuing into the death but the circumstances were not believed to be suspicious.

A report will be sent to the procurator fiscal.
