A man’s body has been found after a 21-year-old man disappeared under water in Essex on Britain’s hottest day.
The discovery was made in Jaywick on Saturday morning by emergency services searching for a man who was last seen in the water near Clacton Pier on Tuesday.
A formal identification has not yet taken place, police said, adding that they are “working with international partners to contact the 21-year-old’s family.”
This week’s heatwave set a new record for the hottest day on record in the UK of 40.3C in Coningsby in Lincolnshire on Tuesday and the previous record of 38.7C in Cambridge three years ago by 1.6C surpassed.
Five people were pulled from the water near Clacton Pier on Tuesday and taken to hospital, but a 21-year-old man was missing for more than 24 hours and the search was reduced.
