Johannesburg - The body of a badly beaten up man was found floating in a river in Coffee Bay on Friday, Eastern Cape police said.

Major Zamukulungisa Jozana said the man, in his 30s, was found with bruises all over the head.

"When police pulled out the body, he was still bleeding... so it didn't happen too long ago," said Jozana.

He said a man who was at the river washing his car, saw the body and called police.
