The family of Maureen Bannister, who was found at Tentsmuir Beach on Tuesday, has paid tribute to her.

In a statement released through Police Scotland, the family said: “We would like to thank everybody who helped in the search for Maureen - the police, coastguards, helicopter personnel, and dog handlers, many of whom were volunteers.

“We would also like to thank everyone who sent kind messages through social media or text.

“Everyone who met ‘Mo’ will know how much of a kind, caring, fun-loving person she was and she is going to be sadly missed.

“Now that we know it’s been a tragic accident we ask to be allowed some time to grieve as a family. Thank you.”
