Coastguard officers recovered the body shortly before 10.30am.

Essex Police is currently attempting to identify the dead man.

“The death is not being treated as suspicious,” said a police spokesman.

Two illegal immigrants were reported to have jumped from a ferry shortly after it departed Harwich port on February 26.

The body of a man that washed up on Felixstowe beach on March 20 was later identified as Leonovid Isufaj, a 27-year-old Albanian national.

The second man who jumped has not been found.
