The family of a man who sadly died at the Marine Lake in Waterloo have today, Tuesday 15th August, paid tribute.
The body of 37-year-old Joe Melia was recovered from the lake yesterday (Monday) after he went missing on Friday.
His death is not being treated as suspicious.
A family statement said: “Joe was a loving dad, partner, son and uncle.
“He was having a lovely day with his family and friends in the sun celebrating his birthday.
“Joe was kind and bubbly and would do anything for anyone.
“We would like to thank everyone for their support but would like time now to process and grieve our loss.”
