Officers investigating the discovery of the man's body have identified him but were today still trying to trace his next of kin.

The man, believed to be aged in his early 60s, was found by a builder shortly before 4pm on Thursday in the River Gipping near West End Road.

A post-mortem examination carried out yesterday failed to establish a cause of death but police said it revealed no suspicious circumstances. More tests were set to be carried out.
