Northern Territory Police said they have found the body of a man who fell from a cliff yesterday afternoon while hiking in Kakadu National Park.

Police spokesman Rob Cross said police officers, Kakadu Park Rangers, local clinic and CareFlight staff were all involved in a search and rescue effort.

But the 29-year-old man’s body was found this morning.

St John Ambulance Territory Duty manager Craig Garraway told the ABC the man fell while hiking with some friends a few kilometres from Ranger uranium mine at 5.30pm on Monday.

Mr Garraway said the hiker had fallen “quite a distance”.

Mr Cross said a report would be prepared for the Coroner.

MORE TO COME.
