The body was discovered on Marriott’s Way, near to Bridge Street and Barker Street, shortly before 4.30pm on Wednesday (31 January).

The death is still being treated as unexplained, although it is not believed to be suspicious according to police.

This follows a post mortem examination carried out by the Home Office on Friday (February 2) which concluded that further tests are still due to be carried out.

The police seal has been removed and a file will be prepared for the coroner in due course.

Marriott’s Way is a popular walking and cycling route in Norwich.

As previously reported, one man, who did not wish to be named, said the woodland, known as Train Wood, is regularly used by people “unofficially camping” in the area. The remains of several tents were next to the cordon.
