Rescue teams in Scotland have found a body, in their search for six missing university students thought to be from Leeds.

More than 100 rescuers were involved in the search for the party from Leeds which was launched on Sunday night after they didn’t arrive back at camp.

The five of the walkers were rescued and airlifted walkers to Rothiemurchus near Aviemore and driven away in an ambulance.

An RAF Lossiemouth helicopter and search and rescue dogs were involved in the operation.

The five, who are unhurt, were located on a hill near Carn Tarsuinn in the Cairngorms by Braemar Mountain Rescue Team at about 12:10.

Shortly afterwards the body of a man was recovered in the Jacob's Ladder area.

The walkers were part of a large group of 35 people who were visiting the Highlands.

They are either from or connected to Leeds University.
