One person tweeted: “Saw the RNLI rushing to the scene with sirens (unusual) so must have been a water related incident. Hope everyone is well.”

The man is yet to be identified by police.

In a statement a Met spokesperson said: “Police were called at 16:18hrs on Thursday, 10 June to a report of a body in the Thames around York House Gardens in Richmond.

“Officers attended along with colleagues from the London Ambulance Service and the RNLI. A male was later recovered from the water. Enquiries continue.”
