A seven-year-old girl who died after getting into difficulty in water at a Perthshire beauty spot has been named.
Freya Skene and her mother Brooke Reid were rushed to hospital after getting into difficulty in the River Braan near Ossian’s Cave on Monday.
The pair, from Dundee, were both taken to Ninewells Hospital under police escort.
Freya later passed away at hospital and her mother was treated for non-life threatening injuries and later released.
Following a post-mortem on Wednesday, Freya’s death has been confirmed as non-suspicious and the police investigation has now concluded, with a report submitted to the Procurator Fiscal.
Freya’s family have since released a statement through Police Scotland.
