Police have identified a body found in wheelie bin on an Islington street at the weekend.

The body of 23-year-old Italian national Erik San-Filippo was discovered in the bin on Tollington Road at 4pm on Saturday.

Detectives say a post mortem was inconclusive, and that they still do not know how Mr San-Filipp died. His family have been told about his death.

A 52-year-old man was arrested on Sunday on suspicion of murder and has been bailed until mid June.
