A man who was found dead in a river in Bedford earlier this week has been named as Zbigien Lasocki.

The 39-year-old's body was pulled from the River Great Ouse on the Riverside Embankment on Tuesday morning.

His death is still being treated as unexplained and a recent post mortem proved inconclusive.

We are keen to speak to anyone who was in the area of the Embankment on Monday evening or Tuesday morning. We have released an image of Zibby and I’d like to speak to anyone who saw him on either of those days.

The details we have of Zibby’s life are also quite limited and we need to build up a much clearer picture of who he associated with and where he stayed.
