A body was discovered in the River Great Ouse near the Butterfly Bridge on Bedford’s Embankment on Sunday morning, April 20.

The fire service recovered the body of a man at around 8.30am on Sunday morning by the bridge.

A police spokeswoman said: “The man was not local and his death is not suspicious. We have been liaising with our colleagues in the Derbyshire force. The man left his home in Derbyshire and travelled down to Bedford. The body would have been in the water for hours, not days.”
