Body in Zaragoza reservoir thought to be missing Brit

A BODY recovered by police divers from a submerged car in a Zaragoza reservoir is thought to be that of a British man who disappeared three months ago.

Fishermen who spotted the car in the Civan reservoir in Caspe, Zaragoza, alerted emergency services. Guardia Civil and specialist divers arrived at the scene to make the grim discovery.

The car had just part of the roof poking out of the water. The body has been tentatively identified as 59-year-old Martin Walker who went missing at the start of March. The vehicle’s number plates match those of Mr Walker’s car that disappeared at the same time. Forensic tests and DNA analysis will be carried out to confirm the identity.


Divers attached airbags to the car and pulled the car from the lake in order to recover the body.

Mr Walker, who ran a fishing tours business called Catfish Capers on the River Ebro, was originally from high Wycombe in Buckinghamshire. He had lived in Spain for around 15 years.
