A man whose body was found in a waterway on the outskirts of Spalding has been formally identified by police.

The body of Vladeks Sinavskis (41) of Larkspur Way, Spalding, was found by a dog walker in the area of Vernatt’s Drain, off Pinchbeck Road, Spalding shortly after 2pm on Sunday January 25.

A cordon was set up round the are while a police underwater search team recovered the body from the water and it was confirmed two days later that Mr Sinavskis’ death wasn’t being treated as suspicious.

At the time, South Lincolnshire Coroner’s Office said an inquest into Mr Sinavskis’ death would be opened once a post-mortem had been carried out by a Home Office pathologist and formal identification of the body had been done by the dead man’s family.
