Decomposed body found in river
The decomposed body of a man has been found floating in a stretch of a Berkshire river by a cyclist.

The deceased, in his 20s or 30s, was discovered in Jubilee River, near Lake End Road in Dorney on Saturday.

Officers believe the corpse, which was removed by a police specialist recovery team at 1700 BST, has been in the water for a number of weeks.

A post-mortem examination on the white man, who has not yet been identified, is expected to take place next week.
