Body found after River Thames tug boat capsize
A man's body has been found, following the sinking of a tug boat in the Thames at Greenwich last Friday.
The Port of London Authority said the body was found at Deptford, south-east London, at about 1700 BST on Monday.
The tug Chiefton, thought to be owned by Palmer Marine Services based in Gravesend, Kent, was carrying three crew members. Two men were rescued.
The body has not been formally identified as the missing man but his family have been informed.
The Chiefton got into difficulties at Convoys Wharf in Deptford, near Greenwich Pier, and capsized at about 10:50 BST on Friday.
The vessel was towing a crane barge named Skyline at the time of the incident.
Rescue teams are now preparing to raise the sunken tug within the next two days.
Safety measures on the Thames were tightened in the aftermath of the 1989 Marchioness riverboat disaster in which 51 people died when their boat collided with a dredger near Southwark, south London.
