Police sealed off Tower Gardens in York this morning.
Scenes of crime officers were at the riverside area investigating a serious incident.
Crime scene tape was stretched across all the entrances to Tower Gardens. A CSI van was parked on Tower Street, and another van on South Esplanade.
The cordon was lifted by 11.30am.
Earlier, officers at each entrance were advising pedestrians and cyclists on the best diversions around the cordon.
Two CSI officers were in Tower Gardens this morning. They were photographing an area close to Tower Place.
Two yellow evidence markers were on the path close to the river near South Esplanade.
The YO1 Beach Club – the summer beach and play area – was closed due to the investigation in the morning. But it reopened at 12.30pm, posting on Facebook: “We thank you for your understanding and hope to see you down there later!”
More details when we get them.
