Police have been given more time to question three people on suspicion of murder after a man's body was discovered at a landfill site.

Stephen Round, 43, was found at Granville Recycling Centre in Telford on Friday. He died from head and neck injuries, police said.

Two men and a woman were arrested on suspicion of the father-of-one's murder Saturday.

Detectives now have until Tuesday morning to charge or release the trio.

Police said at the weekend that a major incident unit has been set up at Malinsgate Police Station in Telford and more than 50 police officers and police staff are working on the case.
