A Sad Story


This morning at 11am police recovered a body of a man which was caught in the buoys above the weir at Jesus Lock. I often walk across Jesus Lock bridge, and would have done just that this morning, had we been moored as we often are, just below the lock on the visitor moorings. The police "have not ruled out suspicious circumstances" but whatever happened it is sad and and slightly disturbing to think of such a thing occurring in 'my' river. Especially as I could easily have been one of the members of the public who notified the police. Toni, on NB Lee which is moored above the lock is quoted as saying "It's all a bit eerie and a murky business. We didn't notice it until all the police came."
