A Kent Police spokesman said: "A man's body was removed from the river earlier this evening. The death is not currently being treated as suspicious."

Passer-by Craig Smith watched police arrive at the scene.

"I walked past a bit earlier and saw a woman leaving the boat yard - she looked a bit upset.

"When I came back I saw the police were charging down there with blue lights."
