The discovery was made by the Portsmouth lifeboat, which carried out a joint search with HM Coastguard at about 7am, following reports of a body seen near the entrance to Langstone Harbour.

Police later stated it was a man who had been found, and that early examinations showed his body had ‘been in the water for some time’.
