A dog walker who plunged to his death from cliffs may have been caught off guard by strong winds.
The 58-year-old victim fell from cliffs near Eyemouth, Berwickshire, on Saturday night, while he was out walking his pet. The victim, who has not been named, was staying at Eyemouth Holiday Park.
According to local people he may have been from the Newcastle area and spent about eight months of the year at the park.
The accident happened just a few hundred metres from the man's caravan at Weasel Loch, near Fort Point.
One man, who asked not to be named, said it was possible a sudden gust of wind could have caused the man to fall to his death.
He said: "I walk along this cliff all the time and it can get fiercely windy up there. Even if you know the walk very well, you have to be very careful where you step.
"There's muddy patches all along this path and all it would take is one slip in the wrong place and you'd be gone."
Local charity shop owner May Robertson said the area was treacherous.
She said: "It doesn't take much for a tragic accident like this to happen."
The man was reported missing at about 10pm and 40 minutes later a body was spotted at the bottom of the cliff.
Paramedics abseiled down to help the man but he was pronounced dead at the scene and a helicopter was used to recover his body.
A police spokesman said: "There are no suspicious circumstances surrounding his death, and a report will be sent to the procurator fiscal."
