Oxford: Latest On Body Found In Port Meadow
Police close off part of Oxford as they investigate a body found in a tent at Port Meadow.
A cordon was set up in the Port Meadow area of Wolvercote, after a body was found in a tent at lunchtime yesterday - along with a strong smell of chemicals.
The death's being treated as unexplained - although we're told there are NO suspicious circumstances.
Trained officers - trying to find out the chemical involved suggest it's hydrogen sulphide - a colourless gas which smells of rotten eggs - but emergency services say the area won't re-open until they know for sure.
Supt Steve Hockin said: "Early indications are that the chemical involved in the death of the man is hydrogen sulphide, but emergency services are working together to examine the scene and recover the body as safely as possible.
The cordon remains in place around the scene and several local footpaths remain closed. We are asking the public to avoid the area to allow investigations to progress safely."
