Police are appealing for the public's help after the body of a man was found in the water in Bristol harbour.

The body was found at Redcliffe Quay yesterday (21 Nov) shortly before 12.45pm by a member of the public who found the body in the water.

Although formal identification has not yet been completed, police believe the deceased to be Andrew Bakehouse, 49, from the Redcliffe area of Bristol. His next of kin have been informed.

We now need to piece together his movements prior to yesterday afternoon. We would ask anyone who might have seen or heard from Andrew in the last few days to come forward.

Any information, regardless of how insignificant you think it might be, could be crucial to this investigation.

Historic tall ships to visit Plymouth

Kaskelot heads to Plymouth Credit: Sutton Harbour Holdings plc

The first of two historic tall ships visiting Plymouth this spring arrives in Sutton Harbour later today.

The Kaskelot will be sailing into the city late afternoon and stay until Sunday, April 12th.

Kaskelot is widely regarded as one of the finest wooden tall ships of its age still in commission today, and a fascinating vessel with an incredible history.

We are delighted to welcome Kaskelot to Sutton Harbour this Easter so people in Plymouth can enjoy the chance to tour this beautifully restored tall ship.

There has already been huge interest in the visit, and we are expecting a lot of people to head down to Plymouth’s waterfront over the Easter weekend to see Kaskelot for themselves.
