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.
