A man whose body was found in the water at Ipswich’s Neptune Marina has been named as Levin Topal.

Mr Topal, 35, from Ipswich, was pulled from the water on June 15.

Police said his death was being treated as unexplained rather than suspicious.

Fire, ambulance and police crews were sent to the waterfront near Aurora bar, just before 11am to reports that a body had been seen floating 20ft out in the marina near Patteson Road.

A water rescue team from Princes Street Fire Station in Ipswich was deployed in an inflatable boat to recover Mr Topal by 11.30am.
