THE death of a man whose body was found in Hartlepool Marina is not being treated as suspicious, police said last night.

The body was found by a fisherman in the water beside boats at the weekend and a post-mortem examination has been carried out.

However, the man has not yet been officially identified.

Police were last night awaiting the results of the postmortem examination, but said they had no reason at the moment to believe he died in suspicious circumstances.

It is not yet known whether the body could be that of Joshua Willingale, 24, who was reported missing on Saturday, September 15, and was last seen on security cameras near Jacksons Dock, close to the marina.
