Body found in the back of a car at Tesco store

A body has been found in the back of a car at a Tesco store in east London. Police cordoned off part of the car park at Tesco Gallows Corner near Romford early this morning.

Police say they found the body of a man in his 50s inside the car. Speaking to the Brentwood Gazzette an employee of Rapid Mechanical Services - situated opposite Tesco - said:

I got in at 7.20am this morning and it was all cordoned off. There was a couple of police cars and plain clothes police.

I saw a couple of forensics vans turn up and there was a couple of guys in full black suits and masks.

And then you had forensic guys in white suits.

I'm a bit shocked if it was a body. I thought if there was a body it would be screened off.

I thought if it was a bomb we would have been out of there.

I have lived round here all my life and I do not expect it. You get the odd bit of crime round here but no bodies.
