Body discovered by police divers in River Helford

A body has been discovered in a river in Cornwall.

It was found and recovered by police divers in the Helford River, near Durgan, in the early hours of Sunday, Devon and Cornwall Police said.

Efforts were under way to identify it, officers added.

A major search operation involving a helicopter and lifeboats was started by coastguards and police after a man disappeared while swimming in the river last week.
