Police in second search for man seen in Royal Docks

Police have resumed a search of the Royal Albert Dock following reports that a man was seen in the water.

The operation started at around 8.45pm yesterday when officers were joined by the London Ambulance Service and crews from Plaistow fire station.

But it proved fruitless and was called off overnight because of “light and weather conditions,” police said.

The search is close to the University of East London’s Docklands Campus and is still ongoing.
