Lee Balkwell to be exhumed in cement mixer death probe

The body of a man found trapped in a concrete mixer on a farm in Essex more than a decade ago is to be exhumed by police.

Lee Balkwell, 33, was found in the mixer lorry near Upminster in 2002.

Essex Police initially said the death was the result of an industrial accident but an inquest found he was unlawfully killed.

Mr Balkwell's father Les said the exhumation was "a necessary evil".
