EVESHAM’s Abbey Park play area will remain closed for much of today (Sunday) after the body of a man was discovered.

The man in his 30s was found shortly before 6.30am and his death is currently being treated as unexplained. His next of kin have been informed.

Forensic investigations will continue within the police cordon

Chief Insp Dave Troth, said: “I’d once again like to thank the public for their patience this morning, and re-iterate that we are treating this as an isolated incident.

“There will be an increased police presence in Abbey Park today while we investigate the circumstances around the man’s death.

“The play area is still cordoned off and so I would ask that you avoid that area of the park today.

“I know that seeing a lot of police officers can seem alarming, but anyone with any concerns is welcome to speak to our officers.”
