The body of a woman has been found in the River Thames in the Dagenham Dock area.
Police were called at 3pm yesterday and recovered her body from the river.
A Metropolitan Police spokesperson said that at this early stage her death is being treated as unexplained, and is not believed to be suspicious.
Nor is it believed to be linked to the attack in Krythia Road on Monday that has left a woman fighting for her life.
The victim’s next of kin have been informed and a post mortem will be held in due course.
