Police searching a lake in Walsall Arboretum have this afternoon (Wednesday 16 April) recovered the body of a man from the water. Emergency services were called to the park at around 7.30pm yesterday after a passer-by spotted a person in difficulty. Two police officers attempted to rescue the man but he went under the water. His death is currently being treated as unexplained. The arboretum will remain closed for the rest of today and is due to re-open as normal tomorrow.
