Second body found in the K&A Canal at Newbury

The body of a man in his 80s was recovered from the Kennet & Avon Canal near to Bone Mill Sluice in Newbury on Wednesday afternoon (15 June 2011).  The man, who has not yet been formally identified, is not believed by police to be from the local area.

This follows another incident only 11 days earlier when on on June 4th the body of an 80-year-old man from Thatcham was found in the canal nearby at  Mill Lane.

Police are not treating either death as suspicious.
