Police believe they have identified a man whose body was recovered from a river in a park.

The man, whose body was found in the River Leam in Jephson Gardens, Leamington Spa, is believed to be a 65-year-old from the town.

Officers had asked for help to identify him and said the death was no longer being treated as suspicious.

Det Insp Teresa McKenna thanked people for sharing the appeal, adding formal identification was yet to take place.

"Our thoughts remain with the man's family at this difficult time who are being supported by specially trained officers," she said.

Warwickshire Police had released a photo of a set of keys the man was carrying as part of its bid to identify him.
