It is with great sadness that we report the discovery of a body that is believed to be that of missing London Firefighter Anthony Knott.

The thoughts of PoliceHour are with the family and those who served with and knew of Anthony at this extremely difficult time.

Sussex Police announced the news that they had sadly recovered a body from the River Ouse in Newhaven.

A member of the public who had been walking contacted police at 9.41am on Friday 10th January to make them aware that the body of a man was in the water located near to Denton Island.

Sussex Police sadly believe this to be the body of missing 33-year-old Anthony Knott from Orpington.

Detective Inspector Mark Rosser said: “Our thoughts are with the family and friends of Anthony at this difficult time. We too are saddened by this update and would ask the public and media to respect the families’ privacy at this time.

“We would like to thank the public for their tremendous support with our investigation into the disappearance of Anthony, along with our partner agencies and volunteers who assisted with the search.”
