Police appeal as search continues for man in Walsall lake

Police have appealed for information as they continue to search for a man who is feared to have drowned in the lake at Walsall Arboretum.

We have been making enquiries in the local area overnight in an attempt to identify the man seen in difficulty and to determine how he came to be in the water.

We continue to appeal for information from people who may have been in the Arboretum or in the local area at around 7.30pm and may have seen something that can assist the police investigation.
