Extract from BBC News (http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/7345486.stm):
The body of a man, believed to be missing TV presenter Mark Speight, has been found in a remote area of London’s Paddington station, police have said.
Officers are treating the death as “unexplained” but have confirmed that the man had not been hit by a train.
Mr Speight, 42, disappeared last Monday, three months after the death of his fiancee, Natasha Collins, in the bath of the flat they shared in London.
Miss Collins’ mother was devastated at the latest news, her spokeswoman said.
She asked for Carmen Collins to be given time to grieve in peace.
The BBC released a statement saying: “This is very sad news and our thoughts and sympathies are with Mark’s family and friends.
“Mark was a hugely talented and very popular presenter for many years.”
