He was likely to have been inside a commercial bin that was transported to the site by a lorry, said police, who are treating the death as "unexplained."

Sussex Police's Detective Inspector Jim McKnight said Mr Farr's family has been informed and appealed for anyone with information to contact the police.

"It is likely that Ben's body was brought to the site by lorry having been taken from a commercial refuse bin," he said. "The refuse bin could be from a number of locations but is likely to be from a coastal location in West Sussex."
