A computerised image of a man whose body was found weighted down in a river has been released by police in an attempt to discover his identity.

A cyclist spotted the body on 1 May in the Jubilee River near Marsh Lane, Dorney, Maidenhead in Berkshire.

His body had been weighted down and a post mortem examination found that he had died from drowning.

Despite a two-month long investigation police admit they are no closer to discovering his identity.

The man was in his mid-20s to mid-30s, 6ft 1ins tall, medium to well-built, with short brown hair.

Thames Valley Police have filmed an appeal for help to discover the identity of the man which will appear on the BBC's Crimewatch programme.
