AN inquest docket has been opened after the body of a man was found on Monday afternoon.

The body was found floating in the Bredell Dam at the corner of Pomona and High roads.

This is the second body found in less than a week following the discovery of the body of a man in Glen Marais on Thursday last week. 

Two other bodies were found earlier in August and another of a woman in July.
