Surrey Police can confirm that a man's body has been found in the River Thames near Hampton following a search for a man after concerns were raised for his safety earlier this evening.

Officers were called to the area near Hampton Sailing club at around 6.45pm on Thursday, 1 August after a man was seen to enter the water.

The body has not yet been formally identified and enquiries are on-going to trace the next of kin. At this stage in the investigation the death is being treated as unexplained.

Six Police officers strip search woman leaving her naked.

Six police officers should face misconduct proceedings after a clubber was strip-searched and left naked in a cell filmed by CCTV cameras, the police watchdog said.

The 22-year-old woman was searched by one female and four male officers at Chelsea Police Station in London in March 2011, against regulations that police should be the same sex as those they strip-search.

She was left naked for half-an-hour in a cell, with the images broadcast to the station's custody desk, the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) said.

An IPCC caseworker found the search, which was carried out by one female and four male officers, was in breach of the Police and Criminal Evidence Act (PACE) which allows only officers of the same sex to carry out strip-searches.
No written record was made of the incident, either.

The IPCC recommended in its judgment that the Police Sergeant on duty, who along with the other officers was not named, should face a charge of gross misconduct for the oversight and over the failure to ensure the search was carried out in accordance with legal guidelines.
