Man found dead next to A45 in Northampton

The discovery of a man's body on a footpath next to a Northamptonshire road is being treated as "unexplained", police said.

The dead man was found by two cyclists next to the A45 in Northampton, on the eastbound carriageway between the Collingtree and Hunsbury junctions, at about 07:20 BST.

One lane of the dual carriageway has been cordoned off, causing long tailbacks of traffic.

Post-mortem tests are taking place.
