Images of clothing a man was wearing when he was found dead in the River Thames in Berkshire have been released in the hope he will be identified.

The man was found near Ferry Lane in Wraysbury on 22 August by a passer-by.

Post-mortem tests were unable to ascertain the cause of his death but it is not being treated as suspicious.

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.

Det Sgt Peter Wall, from Maidenhead CID, said: "Despite extensive investigation we have still not been able to identify this man.

"However, we have made a considerable effort to source exactly the same clothes the man was wearing in the hope it jogs the memory of someone who may know him, or who saw him prior to his death."
