The body of a 69-year-old man was found in the sea at Frinton this morning.

Emergency services were called just after 8am today, Friday, November 17, to reports that a man’s body had been discovered close to The Esplanade.

The man was pronounced dead at the scene.

A spokeswoman for Essex Police said the man’s family have been informed of his death.

“His death is not being treated as suspicious and a file will be prepared for the coroner,” she said.

A spokeswoman for the East of England Ambulance Service added: “The East of England Ambulance Service received an emergency 999 call to The Esplanade in Frinton-On-Sea this morning, November 17, at 8.05am after reports that a male was unconscious and not breathing.

“Multiple emergency vehicles were sent including an air ambulance and members of the Hazardous Area Response Team (HART).
