The body of a man found in the River Derwent on Wednesday afternoon is believed to be that of trainer Owen Brennan, Derbyshire Police have said.

The 77-year-old Derbyshire handler suffered from memory loss and had been missing since leaving his home in Wheeldon Avenue, Derby, on December 17 at 4.45pm.

Police said a passer-by spotted the body at around 12.10pm in the water at Darley Park, near Derby city centre. The body has not been formally identified.

A statement issued by Derbyshire Police read: "Police can confirm the body of a man has been found in the River Derwent in Derby today (Wednesday, January 9).

"Officers were called to Darley Park by a member of the public at around 12.10pm.

"The body has not been formally identified but is believed to be that of Owen Brennan, a 77-year-old who was reported missing from his home in Derby on December 17.

"Police do not believe there to be any suspicious circumstances."

Brennan's training career spanned over 40 years, with his best horses including Vulrory's Clown, Speaker Weatherill and Strath Royal, winner of the Charlie Hall Chase at Wetherby in 1998.
