Body found in Newmarket

The body of a man has been found in woods in Newmarket.

Suffolk police say four men went into Newmarket Police Station at just after 6pm last night reporting that they had not seen a friend for four days, but they had been out searching for him and found him dead in the wooded area.

He had not previously been reported as missing, but officers immediately attended woodland off Bury Road and found the body of a man, possibly in his 30s or 40s.

The area has been cordoned off while an initial investigation gets underway at the scene.

The death is being treated as unexplained.
