Man's body found in Southampton stream

A man's body has been found in a stream in Southampton.

He was discovered by a dog walker on Tuesday night in woodland off Coxford Road in the Lordshill area of the city.

Police said the body was thought to have been there for some time but it was not yet known whether there were any suspicious circumstances.

A post-mortem examination proved inconclusive and further tests will be needed. Officers said they still do not know the identity of the man.

Det Ch Insp Dave Powell said: "We've sealed off the area in order to conduct an investigation of the scene.

"The body has been in situ for some time, but we don't know for how long."
