The body of a Scots rapper has been pulled from the River Clyde.

Calum Barnes was found dead near Glasgow's Riverside Museum shortly before 1pm on Saturday.

The discovery came after a major search was launched on Sunday, September 3, over fears he had plunged into the water.

Mr Barnes was better known by the name Lumanes with the Glasgow group Deadsoundz Inc.

A Police Scotland spokeswoman said: "The formal identification has taken place and we can confirm the body was that of Calum Barnes."

Tributes have been paid to the popular musician, described as an "inspiration to others around him".

In a statement, Deadsounz Inc said: "The emergency services were able to recover Calum from the River Clyde.

"We want to thank them for all their efforts since Sunday evening (September 3).

"There are no words to thank everyone for their support over this difficult period. We could not have got through without it.

"Every single person has been absolutely amazing. Now he can be laid to rest and we can say goodbye to our brother."

They added: "We are absolutely heartbroken. 21 years old with his whole life ahead of him.

"He will never be forgotten and we will honour his memory every single day. Calum had the biggest smile, heart and ambition of anyone we have ever known. He was an inspiration to others around him."
