CCTV footage has emerged which appears to show TV doctor Michael Mosley falling over close to where his body was found on the Greek island of Symi.

Footage found by a beach bar at Agia Marina shows what appears to be the 67-year-old making his way down a rocky slope close to a fence before he falls out of view.

It comes after his widow Dr Clare Bailey Mosley said he “very nearly made it” to safety.

She said Mosley – who went missing on Wednesday after leaving his wife and friends at Agios Nikolaos beach to walk back to their hotel – appeared to have undertaken an “incredible climb, took the wrong route and collapsed where he couldn’t be easily seen” by search and rescue teams.

She said she took comfort from the fact “he so very nearly made it” – as tributes poured in for the doctor who made popular the 5:2 diet and championed public health.

Mosley first trained as a doctor in London before moving into the world of media, becoming a presenter, documentary maker, author and columnist.

Who was Michael Mosley?

His body was discovered by a cameraman on Sunday morning after a widespread search by emergency services operating in dangerous conditions and high temperatures.

He had been missing for four days and police said they believed he had walked north from Pedi marina in the direction of Agia beach.

His wife raised the alarm after he failed to return.

His four children also arrived on the island to help search for their father as the focus shifted to a snake-infested mountainous area after CCTV footage on Saturday emerged of his then last known movements.

It showed him on Wednesday making his way through the small fishing village of Pedi heading up into the remote rocky terrain.

Chris van Tulleken, Mosley’s co-presenter on BBC series Trust Me, I’m A Doctor, said broadcasting can be “very competitive and a bit cut-throat” but Mosley “created this generous idea that we were all in this together and so he was endlessly helpful off screen as well”.

He added: “There’s so much of his content I just consumed as a normal consumer. I enjoyed it, it entertained me while I was listening, and then it quietly changed my daily practices. So my own personal medical routine every day is very, very based on the work of Michael Mosley over the last 10/15 years.”
