Man's Body Pulled From Canal

The body of a man has been found in a canal close to the Bedford Road in Northampton this morning.

The man was pulled from the water but was unfortunately declared dead at 11.50am.

The circumstances surrounding the man's death are not believed to be suspicious but the A428 will remain closed for the next few hours from the roundabout close to the Holiday Inn along to the next roundabout by the lakeside, to enable the police to carry out an investigation.

Witnesses to this incident, or anyone with information, should call Northamptonshire Police on 03000 111 222 - alternatively, information can be given anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
