Divers find body of tug engineer
Robert Cameron
Mr Cameron was from Houston in Renfrewshire
The body of Robert Cameron, one of three sailors whose tugboat capsized in the River Clyde, has been found, police have confirmed.

Mr Cameron, 65, from Houston, Renfrewshire, served as the engineer on the Flying Phantom, which sank in heavy fog on Wednesday evening.

Skipper Stephen Humphreys, 33, from Greenock, and Eric Blackley, 57, from Gourock, are both presumed dead.

The tug sank while towing a cargo vessel to Glasgow.

Strathclyde Police said Mr Cameron's body was recovered from the submerged tug by divers at about 1620 GMT on Friday.

Poor visibility

The search for the bodies of the two men who are still missing resumed on Saturday morning. It concluded for the day at about 1700 GMT.

A fourth man, Brian Aitchison, 37, from Coldingham in the Scottish Borders, was rescued from the water by a passing boat on Wednesday.

At its height, the search involved 60 people and a dozen boats, with teams from the RNLI, Coastguard, Royal Navy and Strathclyde Police scouring the water and coastline.

But their efforts were hampered by poor visibility, and on Thursday rescuers said there was no chance of finding anyone alive.

Earlier, the family of Mr Blackley paid tribute to a "much loved husband and father".

The Marine Accident Investigation Branch has begun an inquiry into the incident.
