Officers were called to Edward Benefer Way in King's Lynn just after 1.30pm yesterday, after the body of man was found on a path behind the St Nicholas Retail Park.

Today a spokesman said police were satisfied the death was not suspicious and a file was being prepared for the coroner. The man has been identified and his family informed.

Borough councillor Ben Jones who lives behind the path on Sir Lewis Street, said he was aware that the body had been found but did not know who it was.

The Labour member said he was not aware of any issues regarding drugs or anti-social behaviour along the footway.

"A lot of people use it on their commute to work," he added. "I travel down there myself and there's never a problem.

"A lot of people use it to get to parts of North Lynn. A lot of people use it to run down it's a popular path."
