Body exhumed in new police investigation

The body of Lee Balkwell has been exhumed from a cemetery in Essex

A man's body has been exhumed from a cemetery in Essex as part of a new investigation into his death. The body of Lee Balkwell was found trapped under a cement mixer in Upminster in July 2002.

The original police investigation found his death was accidental. But, last year, the Independent Police Complaints Commission found the inquiry was "seriously flawed".
