Body found after boat capsizes on Thames
Police divers searching for two missing men after a boat carrying six passengers capsized have found a body, police said.
Rescuers were called after the vessel overturned on a stretch of the River Thames near Shepperton, Surrey, yesterday evening.
A Surrey police spokeswoman said: "We have found a body. Divers are expected to continue searching the scene until around 7pm."
Four people - three women and one man - were taken to Frimley Park Hospital with minor injuries, South East Coast Ambulance Service NHS Trust confirmed earlier.
A spokeswoman said: "A boat with six people in it capsized last night. We were asked to attend and conveyed four people to hospital. Two men were missing last night."
A helicopter was initially used in a bid to find the men.
Earlier, a Surrey police spokeswoman said: "At around 7.30pm yesterday, Surrey Police and Surrey Fire and Rescue Service attended the River Thames near Shepperton where a small boat had capsized.
"Extensive searches were started immediately, including the use of the police helicopter but there was no trace of the two missing people."
One of the men the divers have been searching for is local and in his 60s, while the other is from the Cambridge area and in his 70s. Police did not confirm which body they found.
The other four passengers are in their 50s and 60s.
