Only last week, police divers were in the area searching near the lock gates after a member of the public reported seeing a ‘possible body’ in the water.

However, nothing was found.

The spokesman said: “Because of this previous sighting of a possible body, the area is being checked again as a precaution.

“Checks are being made to establish whether the person is indeed missing, visiting relatives or in hospital.”

More on this as we get it.
