A KAYAKER whose body was iden­ti­fied more than a month af­ter it was found on an Isle of Wight beach has been named.

The dead man has been iden­ti­fied as Mor­gan Sav­age, 40, from Dublin.

His body was found on Yaver­land beach on Septem­ber 11 but his iden­tity had baf­fled Hamp­shire Po­lice – al­though the force said ear­lier his next-of-kin had fi­nally been lo­cated and in­formed of his death.

Mr Sav­age was last seen at Brighton Ca­noes, in Newhaven, East Sus­sex, at 4pm on Septem­ber 8.

The kayak was a yel­low and black “blow up” Sevy­lor Con­rad.

A Hamp­shire Po­lice spokesper­son said: “A post-mortem, which was car­ried out on Septem­ber 24, was in­con­clu­sive. The coro­ner is await­ing his­tol­ogy re­sults.”
