A BODY has been pulled from the Coventry Canal in Kettlebrook today, Wednesday 10 January.

Officers from Staffordshire Police along with Medical staff from West Midlands Ambulance Service attended the scene at Kettlebrook Road at around 1:50pm today.

After arriving at the scene, police were seen to tape off a section of the road which crossed the canal, along with the tow path. This is standard procedure in an incident such as this.

The body, believed to be that of a man, was removed from the canal, close to Tamworth Cruising Club and what was once the Barge & Barrel public house.

West Midlands Ambulance Service said that when the patient was fetched out [of the water] it became apparent that nothing could be done to save them and they were pronounced dead at the scene.

A spokesperson for Staffordshire said that there was nothing to suggest the discovery was suspicious.

The identify of the person has not been released at this time. Our thoughts are with his friends and family, along with persons that attended the scene.

The area remained cordoned off by Police for over two and half hours and the road was reopened at around 4:30pm.
