Floating Harbour death boots

The boots and T-shirts worn by man who died after falling into Floating Harbour

Police in Bristol have released images of a boot and T-shirt which they hope will help to identify a man who died after falling into the city’s Floating Harbour.

Officers were called at about 5.15am to Narrow Quay, near Arnolfini, after a man was seen in difficulty in the docks. They were joined by fire and rescue and ambulance crews at the scene, but despite rescuing the man from the water at 6am he died later at the Bristol Royal Infirmary two hours later.

The man did not have anything on him to identify him and no one with a similar description has been reported missing.

The body is that of a white man believed to be in his late 20s, medium build with a light brown full beard and light brown short hair. He has an earring bar in the top of his right ear and was wearing a black superdry jacket with a black T-shirt underneath, green coloured jeans and black Dr Marten-style boots with hand written pictures on them.

The victim’s Dr Marten style shoes are distinctive as they have drawings on them and his T-shirt says ‘we want to thank you.’

Sergeant Nick Evans from Avon and Somerset police said: “The boots and T-shirt may be the key to identifying this man. The boots have been written on and I am hoping the person who drew these images, or someone who recognises the boots or the top, will come forward.”

Anyone who recognises these boots or this T-shirt should contact Bristol CID on 101.
