A body has been found near a cycle path in the Hunsbury Hill area of Northampton.
Police were called to the path, between Sixfields and Hunsbury Hill Avenue, at 3am this morning after a man’s body was found in an area of wasteland.
A spokesman for Northamptonshire Police said: “The cycle path between Sixfields in Northampton has been closed to allow for the investigation of an unexplained death of an unidentified man.”
An eye-witness, who walks along the cycle path every day, said: “I walk to and from work along the cycle path every day and when I got there at 8.20am the area was all sealed off.
“I was told the body was found in wasteland and it is quite eerie wondering how long it could have been there.
“I have never seen so many police cars and vans in all my life.”
