Police searching in Hampstead Norreys found the 49-year-old's body on Wednesday at 3.30pm - roughly two hours after he was reported missing by his wife Ruth who told officers she suspected where he might be.

Police are not treating his death with suspicion and the matter has been handed to Berkshire coroner Peter Bedford, who will decide whether to hold an inquest.
