Police recovers body from sea

Police recovered the body of a man recovered from the sea on Friday afternoon. 

Just before 5pm, a local man fishing near the Detached Mole reported that he had seen a body in the water. The RGP Marine Section recovered the body to the Marine Base where he was pronounced dead. 

The families of the Moroccans who were reported missing at sea last weekend have been informed but, at this stage, the identity of the man cannot be confirmed. The death will now be the subject of a Coroner’s investigation.
