Body found in Serpentine lake at Hyde Park

A body has been found in the Serpentine lake in London’s Hyde Park.

Police divers dragged the body from the lake at lunchtime after a walker spotted it in the water.

Visitors walking through the park on the warmest day of the year so far were told to go away as police place a cordon up around the immediate area.

The Metropolitan Police said the man’s death was being treated as “unexplained”.

A worker at the park, who did not want to be named, told the BBC: “We had a few customers out on the lake and someone pointed out that there was something over there so I went and had a look.

“It was just floating on the other side of the island. It was caught on one of the chains.”

A Scotland Yard spokesman said: “We were called at around 1250 BST to the Serpentine to reports a body had been seen.

“Marine support teams recovered a man’s body.”
