Body found in loch

A BODY found in an Oban loch is believed to be that of Tannochside man Kevin Gallacher.

The Speaker reported last week that the 33-year-old was fishing with friends on Loch Etive last Saturday when their boat capsized.

The rest of the group managed to get ashore, but an extensive search failed to find Kevin.

Northern Constabulary announced this week that a body has since been recovered from the water.

Although formal identification hadn’t been carried out as we went to press, Kevin’s next of kin had been informed.
