A man's body has been found at a recycling plant after he climbed into an industrial waste bin in Huddersfield and fell asleep, police have said.

The body of Christopher Ogden, 23, from Elland, was found at the site on Valley Farm Road in Leeds on 24 January.

He is believed to have got into the bin near the bus station in Huddersfield town centre at about 04:45 GMT.

A worker at the Premier Paper Group recycling centre discovered the body several hours later.

An inquest into Mr Ogden's death is expected to be held in Huddersfield.

West Yorkshire Police are now urging the public to help them trace his last movements.

Det Sgt Neil King, of Huddersfield CID, said: "It is thought he fell asleep in an industrial bin before ending up at the plant, but officers want to find out the exact circumstances of how, where and when he entered it.

"We are particularly keen to speak to anyone out clubbing, taxi drivers, takeaway owners or anyone finishing or starting their shift at work at that time who might have seen a young man looking into or climbing on skips and bins around this time."

At the time he was wearing dark jeans, a blue short-sleeved shirt with a burgundy T-shirt underneath.
