Five people - including a 13-year-old girl - have been arrested following the discovery of a man's body on farmland in a Nottinghamshire village.

The body was found in Middle Cross Lane, between Harwell Sluice Lane and Everton Lane, Everton, on Saturday.

Nottinghamshire Police said a murder investigation has been launched.

A 47-year-old woman, three men aged 31, 27 and 21, and the teenage girl were arrested in connection with the inquiry and remain in custody.

A cordon remains in place as forensic examinations continue, and investigations are under way to identify the victim and trace next of kin.

A post-mortem examination has been carried out and at this stage the cause of death is inconclusive, police said.

Det Ch Insp Phil Cox said: "Although we have made five arrests detectives are continuing to make inquiries in the area.

"We are keen to speak to anyone who might have seen something unusual in the area, particularly between Friday and Saturday."
