Worcester river body death 'unexplained'
- 6 July 2013
- From the section Hereford & Worcester
The body of a man has been recovered from the River Severn.
West Mercia Police said the body was discovered by a rower at 09:45 BST near Worcester Rowing Club on Grandstand Road.
Investigations have started to identify the man and the death is being treated as "unexplained", a spokesman said.
Police said it was "too early" to say if the body is that of Stuart Pickup, a Worcestershire man who has been missing for almost a week.
The 37-year-old, from Himbleton, has not been seen since he left work in London on Monday 1 July.
