The death of a man whose body was found floating in the River Wensum is not being treated as suspicious, police have confirmed.
A member of the public discovered the man, believed to be in his 60s, on Wednesday, March 2, in Norwich.
Katy Hull, a 35-year-old waitress from the city had been walking along Quay Side, near Fye Bridge, when she spotted an object in the water.
