The body of a man reported missing on Lough Erne last month has been recovered, as the Belfast Telegraph reports.

Michael McGirr of Co Fermanagh was last seen on Saturday 29 October on a boat heading in the direction of Inish Davar on Lower Lough Erne.

His boat was found empty the following day as a multi-agency search operation was under way.

On Saturday afternoon (12 November) a member of the McGirr family confirmed on social media that a body recovered from the lough by police was identified as Michael, and they thanked the community for their help.
