A man's body found floating in the sea off Cornwall has been identified as that of a leading scientist who worked at Kew Gardens.
The body of Nigel Veitch, 49, was found off St Ives by the crew of a fishing boat on 1 September.
According to the BBC, officers are not treating the death as suspicious.
Mr Veitch, from Ascot, Berkshire, had worked as a senior phytochemist at Kew since 1992.
A statement from Kew Gardens paid tribute to Mr Veitch and, according to the Mirror, read: "We are deeply saddened by Dr Nigel Veitch's death.
"Dr Veitch was a valued colleague and friend to many at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew and an outstanding scientist.
"He was a gifted plant chemist with a long-standing interest in flavonoid chemistry. In 2003 his specialist research was recognised by The American Society of Pharmacognosy Foundation with the Jack L Beal Award."
According to the Daily Telegraph, the statement added: "He was well known across the organisation for his musical talent and led the Kew choir at the annual staff Christmas carol service.
"Our thoughts and prayers are with his family, friends and colleagues."
