Officers were called when it was discovered by a member of the public at around 9am near Ilford golf course.

The body was recovered by the marine police unit.

A spokesman for the Metropolitan Police said: “There has not been a formal identification but we believe we know who the woman is and her family have been informed.

“It is not being treated as suspicious but enquiries are still underway into the circumstances of her death.”

Results of a post-mortem are expected later today and an inquest to establish how she died will open in due course.
