Police say they are not treating the death of a man whose body was found in bushes as suspicious.

A member of the public made the grim discovery beside a busy road on the outskirts of Wisbech this morning.

The body was in bushes near an entrance to the Nestle Purina petfood factory, opposite the Malt Drive children's park on Cromwell Road.

A spokesman for Nestle said: "The factory is operating as normal. Our thoughts and sympathies are with the individual's family at this sad time."

Police have now said they do not believe the man's death to be suspicious.

Part of Cromwell road was closed off between the South Brink and Weasenham Lane but the road has now re-opened.

The body is the second to be found in Wisbech in less than a week.

A young man was found in the River Nene last Friday morning.

Police said the death was not being treated as suspicious and a file has been passed to the coroner.
