THE BODY of a 35-year-old man was found at RM Condor last night.

A spokesman for Tayside Police confirmed: “About 23.55 hours on Sunday, March 24, Tayside Police Officers attended at RM Condor military base, by Arbroath, following the discovery of a body of a 35-year-old man.”

Inspector Neil Anderson stated that officers attended as part of an ongoing enquiry after a serving Marine had been reported missing from an address in Arbroath earlier that evening.

Paramedics were also in attendance, but tragically the man was pronounced dead at the scene. His details will not be released until next of kin have been fully informed.

There are no apparent suspicious circumstances surrounding the incident and as with all sudden deaths a report will be submitted to the Procurator Fiscal.
