Bedfordshire Police say they’re investigating an unexplained death after the body of a man was found in a field along Carlton Road, Turvey.
Around 15 forensic officers were said to be scouring a field last night (Thursday), with protection tents also raised to protect evidence.
There was still a large police presence there this morning with a welfare unit on the scene and multiple farm entrances also taped off and guarded by police.
A spokesperson from Bedfordshire Police told the Bedford Independent: “Officers were called at around 4.30pm yesterday (Thursday) following the discovery of a body.
“The man has yet to be formally identified.”
Anyone with any information that might help the police investigation is asked to contact them at Bedfordshire.police.uk/report or call 101, quoting Operation Helianthus.
