A search for human remains is being carried out on the site where a World War II Spitfire crashed almost 70 years ago. The RAF Spitfire crashed in the Borders shortly after taking off from Drem air base on a training flight on January 16, 1943.

The wreckage was discovered by residents near the site where it crashed at Westruther, near Greenlaw, 
Berwickshire. The pilot, 20-year-old Sergeant Malcolm Eric Edward Robertson of Royal New 
Zealand Air Force, was killed in the crash and his remains were later interred at Craigton Cemetery, in Glasgow.
