Thames Path cordoned off

Police have confirmed a body has been found near Hammersmith Bridge.

They cordoned off an area of the tow path on the Richmond side of the River Thames after the body was found there on Saturday 1 June.

This suggests they are looking at it as a crime scene rather than a suicide, but police at the scene today were not prepared to give further details. Nor could they say when the Thames Path would be reopened, as investigations are ongoing, they told The Chiswick Calendar.
