A message in a bottle written by a Berwick schoolboy has been found at Inchkeith Island more than three years after he wrote it.

The boy, whose name is Jamie, went to school more than 50 miles away in Berwick.

The bottle was found on Thursday by the team of litter-pickers working to clean up the island in the Firth of Forth.

In his letter, Jamie explains that he is studying coasts and waves and asks for the note to be returned to his home address. The boy is no longer a pupil at the school, but the Forth Estuary Forum is now trying to contact him to let him know where and when his bottle was found.
