Police hope photos will help identify man found in canal


Detectives have released images of a watch and keys found on a man whose body was recovered from Leeds & Liverpool Canal near to Bramley Fall Wood Park yesterday (Sunday, 15 January).

Officers are continuing to try and identify the man who is described as an elderly white male with a bald head with white hair on both sides and stubble on the face. 

He was found wearing a beige zipped up waist length jacket, beige scarf, a blue jumper with a red and green diamond type design on, a brown belt, beige trousers, brown leather gloves, green socks and a green and brown checked shirt with a gold metal wristwatch. 

In his possession he had a single key and a 30-year-old A-Z map book.

Detective Sergeant Andrew Greatorex, of Leeds District CID, said: “As you can see in the pictures, this man had a set of keys with a ‘Terrano Filter’ keyring and an Eterna Matic 1000 watch. 

“We are hoping that someone may recognise these items and be able to help us in our enquiries to identify this man.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact Leeds District CID by using 101 Live Chat online or by calling 101, quoting log 407 of 15/01.
