Police have cordoned off an area in Great Yarmouth after a man was found dead inside a van.

Officers were called to Fremantle Road in Yarmouth just before 6.20pm yesterday, June 29, following reports that the man’s body had been found inside a van. The fire service and ambulance were also in attendance.

According to Norfolk Constabulary, the death is being treated as unexplained but not suspicious.

They said: “Chemicals were found at the scene so the area has been cordoned off while it is secured by police.

“It is not believed that these pose a wider risk to the public.”
