Harwich: Body Found After Ferry Plunge
Police who had been searching for two men seen jumping from a ferry off the coast of Essex have recovered a body.
A major search was launched after the men, thought to be Albanians refused entry to the UK, went overboard from the Stena Britannica ferry off Harwich, on February 26th .
Suffolk Police said they had been contacted by a member of the public at about 12.30pm today (Thursday 20th March) reporting a body on a beach near Buregate Road, Felixstowe.
The body appeared to have been in the water for some time, the force added.
A spokesman said: "The body is believed to be that of a man.
"Police are making efforts to identify him and have found a quantity of euro currency on the body.
"Suffolk Police are liaising with their Essex counterparts following the find."
Eleven people were arrested in the Netherlands as part of a "human smuggling" investigation following the incident.
The UK Border Agency confirmed 13 people who had arrivied at Harwich by ferry had been refused entry to the country.
Flood-threatened residents have expressed relief on Essex's coast as a feared storm surge failed to deliver the chaos expected.
Evacuees escaping a predicted high tide and severe weather, which could cause mass flooding in a small Essex village, have begun arriving at a rest centre.
