The River Thames near Embankment is being scoured as part of the search for missing student Harvey Parker, who was last seen on Friday after leaving Heaven nightclub at around 2.15am.

The Metropolitan Police said investigators had viewed CCTV near the Golden Jubilee Bridge and believe Mr Parker, 20, may have entered the water there. The force said that there was nothing to suggest anyone else was involved.

CCTV footage showed Mr Parker walking into Craven Street and then south towards the Embankment, and he has not been seen since.

A friend said the University of York music student had been to a Little Simz concert in Brixton, south London before going to the nightclub.
