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.
