Police are appealing for witnesses after a man’s body was found in water in Limehouse.

Officers were called to Regent’s Canal, near Rhodeswell Road at 7.10am on Wednesday, 11 October after the body of Ali Liaquat was found.

The 55-year-old man’s body was recovered and his next of kin have been informed. A post-mortem has taken place which showed no signs of injuries that may have resulted in his death.

In a statement, the Metropolitan Police said: “While the death is not being treated as suspicious at this time, officers are working to establish how Ali came to be in the water and are pursuing a number of enquiries.

“Officers from the Central East Command Unit are asking anyone who may have seen Ali in the time before his death – especially in the vicinity of Turners Road and Rhodeswell Road – to make contact.”

Anyone with information can call 101 or post @MetCC ref CAD 1199/11 Oct, or to remain 100% anonymous, contact the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
