British police said they had found the body of an Indian-origin actor who appeared in James Bond film Casino Royale, who went missing in London.

Officers investigating the disappearance of Paul Bhattacharjee, 53, said they were told by Sussex Police that the body of a man, matching his description, had been recovered from cliffs in East Sussex, southern England, today.

"This afternoon the body was identified in Sussex as that of Mr Bhattacharjee," said Metropolitan police. His death is being treated as non-suspicious.

Bhattacharjee was said to be in good spirits when he was last seen as at a theatre in central London.

The London actor also appeared in The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, White Teeth and Dirty Pretty Things.

Police described his disappearance as "totally out of character".
