Body found in search at Cambridgeshire lake for missing pair

The body of a 22-year-old man has been recovered from a nature reserve lake in Cambridgeshire where two people went missing from a boat.

Two people were reported missing after going out near the Kingfishers Bridge Project at Wicken, near Ely.

A body was found on Sunday and a file passed to the county coroner. The search for a 17-year-old youth continues, a police spokesman said.

The discovery of the body is not being treated as suspicious, he added.

Police said it was feared the pair had got into difficulties while using a boat. A search for the second person resumed on Monday morning.

A police spokesman said on Sunday night: "Officers are with the families of the missing men."

Opened in 1995, the Kingfishers Bridge Project has transformed 150 acres of arable farmland into a wildlife reserve.
