A man's body has been found in a skip at a waste recycling centre in West Sussex, police have said.

The body was found just before 09:00 BST at the Rudford industrial estate in Ford near Arundel.

His death is being treated as unexplained and detectives are investigating the circumstances.

The body was discovered at a private company where skips are brought in, emptied and sorted. It was during that process that workers spotted him.

Police confirmed the body is of a white man, believed to be in his 20s.

Officers are uncertain whether his injuries were caused before he died or as the skip was being emptied.

The body was removed just before 16:00 BST. A post-mortem examination is due to be held on Wednesday.
