THE body of a woman who was found wash up on a Scots beach has been identified by police.

The 61 year-old Kirkcaldy woman’s family have been told of her death after her remains were found at West Wemyss beach in Fife by a shocked member of the public on Monday.

Detectives said they had halted an investigation into her death, describing it as “non suspicious.”

Cops originally thought she was as young as 40 years-old as they launched a “full-scale enquiry.”

But yesterday (Tuesday) her family responded to a public appeal for information after recognising her description.

She was found wearing three-quarter length grey trousers and a round-neck woolly jumper of the same colour.

Fife Police also said she had a brown ring on her right thumb, two silver rings on her right ring finger and a silver Macintosh style ring on the right middle finger.

The force said in a statement: “We can confirm that they have today identified the body found as that of a 61 year-old Kirkcaldy woman. Her next of kin have been notified.

“Extensive enquiries have revealed that there are no suspicious circumstances surrounding her death.”
