A man that drowned at South Quay last week has been named as Mamun Ahmed-Kabiri.

The 29-year-old was seen entering the water at Millwall Cut on June 18 at around 10pm and he was found the following morning by police divers.

At the opening of his inquest at Poplar Coroner's Court, it was announced he had drowned.

A metropolitan police spokesman said: "Police were called just after 10pm on June 18 to reports of a male having entered the water at West India Dock via South Quay Plaza.

"Officers, including the Marine Police Unit, and other emergency services attended and following reports that the male had not re-surfaced, searched the water. The initial searches did not recover a body.

"Next of kin have been informed."

Police are not treating the incident as suspicious and a full inquest will be held in October.
