A man's body has been found inside a freezer at a recycling unit.

The remains of an elderly man were found inside the appliance at a waste management centre in Exhall, Warwickshire Police said.

It had been transported to the Colliery Lane site after a flat clearance by a housing association in Birmingham.

A 50-year-old man, believed to have been known to the victim, has been arrested on suspicion of murder.

A post-mortem examination is due to take place on Wednesday, the force said.
