OFFICERS of the Guardia Civil Maritime Service on patrol near the port of La Vila spotted a body in the water late last Friday.

They alerted colleagues in the Special Group of Underwater Activities (GEAS) section who were charged with recovering the body.

It appeared from a brief examination of the body after it was taken on board that it had been in the water for some considerable time, did not appear to have been beaten or attacked prior to entry and was likely to be the corpse of a male aged between 25 and 30.

The body which was wearing a lifejacket has now been taken to the post of La Vila for formal examination and attempts will be made to try to identify the deceased as well as cause of death.
