A man whose body was found by a cyclist in the early hours of Thursday morning died after becoming disorientated and succumbing to the weather conditions, police have said.
The 35-year-old from St James was found on the cycle path between Hunsbury Hill Avenue and Sixfields Stadium in Northampton at 3am. His death is not being treated as suspicious.
