The unidentified body of a vagrant man found dead on a park bench in November, has been photographed by police in a final bid to find his relatives.

Scotland Yard photographed the body of the mystery man last week, two months after he was found dead on a bench outside Green Park House, Poplar Walk, on Friday, November 23, 2000.

PC Cliff Betts of the missing persons unit at South Norwood said: "We are waiting for photos to come back. Scotland Yard will enhance the photographs and make them appear life-like."

A post-mortem revealed that the man, between 60 and 65, died of natural causes. He is described as white with blue eyes, 5ft 9ins, thin to medium build, with long grey hair and a greying dark beard.

He wore a navy blue jacket bearing the logo Bosch', a cream shirt, black jumper, a red scarf and black shoes.
