INQUESTS into the death of three men who were pulled from the River Thames have been opened.

Arthur Pounder, Roy Robins and Timothy Long were all retrieved by firefighters between January 7 and February 7.

At the time, police described their deaths as 'unexplained but not suspicious' and Berkshire Coroner's Office has set dates for the inquests of all three men.

Robins, 81, went missing from his home on Rose Street in Wokingham, sparking a major police search to find the pensioner.

Emergency services were sent to George Street, near Reading Bridge, on January 7, and retrieved a body from the water.

As part of their ongoing appeal, Thames Valley Police suggested Robins may visited Wokingham medical centre, the Royal Berkshire Hospital or other areas in Wokingham town centre before his death.

At the time, a spokesman for Thames Valley Police said: "Although formal identification has not yet taken place, sadly officers believe that the body is that of Roy Robins, aged 81, who was missing from Wokingham.

"The death is being treated as unexplained but not suspicious.

"His next of kin has been informed and a file will be prepared for the coroner."

His inquest is scheduled for July 4 at Reading Town Hall.

Firefighters, paramedics and a police forensics unit could be seen at Caversham Lock on January 27.

Another body was pulled from the water and the man has now been identified as Arthur Pounder, 51, of Bath Road, Reading.

The investigation into his death was opened by the coroner's office on February 2 and the inquest is scheduled to take place on April 27 at the town hall.

Firefighters from Dee Road and Wokingham were sent to Pangbourne following reports of a body in the water on February 7.

The body has been identified as Timothy Long, 54, of St George's Road, Reading and his inquest is set for July 24.
