Police have made another appeal for information on a man who drowned in the River Lea nearly five years ago.

A computer generated image has also been re-released of the man who was found in the water near Straford High Street on December 12, 2009.

Police have also issued a photo of the t-shirt he was wearing.

The man was aged between 40 and 50 years old, around 5ft 9ins tall with blue eyes. A post mortem showed he drowned. Police are not treating the death as suspicious.


Detective Sergeant Gerard Healy of Newham Police said: "Newham officers continue to work tirelessly to ascertain this man's identity via numerous media appeals and exhaustive lines of enquiry, some international which have extended as far as Australia.

"We remain hopeful this further appeal containing a computer generated image of the man, will lead to his identification. "
