Paul, from Eccles near Manchester, failed to surface after diving into the sea off the St Abbs coast on Sunday, August 24, prompting a widespread search involving coastguard, lifeboats, local fishing and dive boats and an RAF helicopter.

Last week family paid tribute to the father of two, adding that diving was a hobby which had “given him great enjoyment over the years.”
