Oxford Mail: The body was found on Orchard Way in Oxford.

No further details were released by police about the incident.

The Oxford Mail has contacted Thames Valley Police for more information on the body being found and whether there were any road closures in place. 

A witness who wished to remain anonymous said they had seen police on scene in the area including people who appeared to be forensics officers. 

Orchard Way is close to the Barns Road Playground and BMX Track park. 

It comes two days after police announced the body of Iona, whose surname has not been disclosed, had been found in the River Windrush after she went missing in Witney on Monday, February 12.
