A body found at a marina on the banks of the Firth of Forth has been confirmed as missing Frightened Rabbit singer Scott Hutchison.

The discovery was made at Port Edgar, between the Forth Road Bridge and Queensferry Crossing, at about 20:30 on Thursday.

Mr Hutchison, 36, went missing in the early hours of Wednesday morning.

His family said there had been recent concerns about his mental health, and they were “devastated” by his death.

Mr Hutchison had spoken openly about his battle with depression over the years, with elder friend Neil saying he had done so “in an attempt to help other people with similar conditions”.

‘Articulate and charismatic’

In a statement released on Friday, the family told Mr Hutchison “wore his heart on his sleeve, and that was evident in the lyrics of his music and the contents of many of his social media posts.

“He was passionate, articulate and charismatic, as well as represent one of the funniest and kindest people we knew. Friends and family would all agree that he had a brilliant sense of humour and was a great person to be around.”
