A body found washed up on the beach at Felixstowe has been confirmed as that of Leonovid Isufaj, an Albanian national who is believed to have gone overboard from a ferry that left Harwich on February 26. Police said the body, found on Thursday, had been in the water for some time.
It's been identified as Mr Isufaj, who was 27 years old. Suffolk Police say his death is being treated as unexplained pending the results of a post mortem examination, however there are not thought to be any suspicious circumstances.
Stena Line have released a new statement after two people were reported to have jumped from a Stena Britannica ferry travelling from Harwich to Hook in Holland yesterday (Wednesday 26 February).
A spokesperson for Stena Line said:
"Stena Line can confirm that the two missing passengers were part of a group that had been refused entry to the UK by the UK Borders Agency and were on their way back to the Netherlands but cannot comment further on their identity, as this is an issue for the UK and Dutch immigration authorities.
"The Stena Britannica arrived in the Hook of Holland yesterday evening and a thorough search of the vessel was conducted but the two missing passengers were not found."
"Stena Line can confirm that two passengers are currently missing from the 09:00 sailing from Harwich to Hook of Holland.
The two passengers are believed to have jumped overboard at approximately 09:45 today. The passengers were travelling on the Stena Britannica.
Stena Line can confirm that 92 passengers are currently onboard the Stena Britannica, along with 81 crew. The Stena Britannica has been assisting the Thames Coastguard in the search for the two passengers and has now been released to resume its crossing to Holland."
