Investigation launched after a man’s body is found in Thetford

Police are investigating after the body of a young man was found in a Thetford cul-de-sac.

Officers were called to Dane Close at around 7am today (Monday) when the body was discovered outside a home where a young couple is thought to have lived.

The man, believed to have been in his early 20s, has not yet been named and the death is not being treated as suspicious.

Residents in the close, a mixture of houses and flats off Icknield Way, said that people tended not to talk to each other and 'kept themselves to themselves.'

One neighbour said he had seen a young man and woman living at the house, but he had never spoken to them.

He noticed an ambulance and later the police and coroner outside the house in the early morning.

Another said he had been up celebrating the Bank Holiday until 1am, but he had not seen or heard anything since about the discovery.
