Police have released an artist's impression of a man found dead in the River Thames in Berkshire.

The body of the unidentified man was discovered by a member of the public near Ferry Lane, Wraysbury, on 22 August.

Police are not treating the death as suspicious, although post-mortem tests proved inconclusive.

Images of clothes the man was wearing at the time of his death were released in October.

Police hope the image of the man, created by a forensic artist, will jog people's memories and help with their ongoing investigations.

It shows his appearance at the time of his death.

The man was white, between 40 and 50 years old, 5ft 8ins to 5ft 9ins, of slim build with blonde or reddish short cropped hair and a wispy ginger beard.

He was wearing a black Slazenger vest top, khaki Pierre Cardin jeans which had black tape linking around two of the belt loops acting as a makeshift belt, and white size eight Lonsdale trainers with a blue trim and Velcro fasteners.

Police also found a disposable razor and a small rubber ball in his possession.
