Concerns had been raised for two men in their 60s who had been "out of touch with their family".

When police attended the boat, which was moored on the river close to Museum Street in the city, the bodies of two men were found on board.

Fire and ambulance services also attended the scene. The bodies have now been removed.

North Yorkshire Police said an investigation had been launched to determine the circumstances surrounding the deaths, which are currently being treated as unexplained pending the results of a post mortem.

A statement from the force said they were not yet in a position to identify the two men.
