Police are appealing for information following the death of a man who was discovered following a caravan fire in Diss this weekend.

Investigations are continuing into the blaze which broke out at a caravan near the railway bridge on Sandy Lane, Diss, at 8.20pm on Saturday.

Members of the public called the emergency services and crews from Diss and Harleston contained the fire. The body was found in the remains of the caravan.

The area remained cordoned-off yesterday as forensic investigators tried to establish the cause of the fire in conjunction with the fire service.

Detective Inspector Richard Graveling appealed for witnesses to come forward and added: 'I want to speak to anyone who was in the area where the caravan was from 7pm onwards on Saturday night.


You may also want to watch:


'This is beside a well-known, well-used footpath, popular with dog walkers and many people may have passed by. Anyone who may have seen anything which may help us to establish what happened should get in touch.'

Anyone with information should contact Norwich CID on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
