The body of the man who died last night was found in Shay Lane, Brierfield, by a farmer shortly after lunchtime today.
Officers attended the scene and the air ambulance was called to take the body to the Royal
Blackburn Hospital as the area was too difficult to access for vehicles because of the snow.
Police said the man has been identified and his family have been informed.
A post mortem examination will take place to establish the cause of death.
