A BODY was pulled out of one of the Hampstead Heath ponds by police divers on Sunday.

Officers from the Marine Support unit recovered the body of a man at around 1.40pm from the Highgate Boating Pond after it was spotted floating by a member of the public. He was pronounced dead at the scene but has not yet been identified.

Police have told the Ham&High they are not treating his death as suspicious. One theory the police are investigating is whether the man may have fallen in after drinking too much.
