Police were called by the ambulance service just after 7am this morning (Thursday June 13) following the discovery in Cromwell Road.

The body was lying near an entrance to the Nestle Purina petfood factory, opposite the Malt Drive children's park.

A spokesman for Nestle said: "The factory is operating as normal. Our thoughts and sympathies are with the individual's family at this sad time."

Police have now said they do not believe the man's death to be suspicious.

A spokesman said the man's identity had not yet been established but the investigation would now be passed on to the coroner.

Part of Cromwell road was closed off between the South Brink and Weasenham Lane but the road has now re-opened.

The body is the second to be found in Wisbech in less than a week.

A young man was found in the River Nene last Friday morning.

Police said the death was not being treated as suspicious and a file has been passed to the coroner.
