A section of the beauty spot, close to the football pitch off Mousehold Lane, was cordoned off with blue and white police tape, on the morning of Easter Monday.

With the Norwich City Council-managed heathland popular among dog walkers, Norfolk police placed the tape, blocking a number of paths through the trees, to keep the public away.

Behind the tape, forensics investigators carried out their work and the body was recovered.

Three Norfolk Constabulary police cars and a forensics investigation van were parked by the side of the road in Mousehold Lane.
