[E-fit of man found deceased]

Police are appealing for the public's help to identify a man who was found dead on Hackney Marshes.

The man was found on 7 December 2015 and, despite extensive enquiries, police have been unable to identify him.

His death is not being treated as suspicious.

Police have now released an e-fit of the man, who is described as south-east Asian in appearance, in a bid to locate his next of kin.

The man was clean shaven with black, greying, hair. He was aged between 40 and 45 years old, about 5ft 6ins tall and weighed approximately eight stone.

His dental hygiene was very bad and he was missing teeth, those remaining were very decayed.

The man was wearing several layers of clothing which included: a black North Face jacket, dark grey hooded top with a front zip and a white knitted V-neck jumper.

He was also wearing light-blue jeans with orange seams and a small brown leather logo on the front right mini pocket, a black belt with a silver coloured plain buckle and black trainers with what appears to be a white Lacoste logo on the tongue of the shoe.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police at Hackney Missing Persons Unit on 101 or contact Missing People on 116000
