“He was seen outside Coral bookmakers on Grosvenor Street at 2.50pm before this image was taken outside the entrance to Tesco at 3.05pm. Three minutes later, we received a 999 call to say he was in the canal.

“We do not believe Shaquille has been a victim of an assault or a third party has been involved but we are still treating his death as unexplained.

“If you believe you saw him between these two times, please call us as we are still trying to find out the circumstances that led to him being in the canal.”

Shaquille is described as being of mixed race, was wearing a dark grey gilet with a blue hood, dark grey hooded top, burgundy polo shirt, grey jogging bottoms and black trainers.
