A man's body was found by coastguards at 730am this morning in the sea off Ramsgate, Kent.
Police were alerted by the coastguards and initial enquiries would suggest he is not British.
There is nothing to suggest this is a suspicious death.
It is unexplained and enquiries are underway to establish his identity.
Officers are also liaising with their European counterparts to see if there have been any missing fisherman or other foreign nationals reported as missing.
