A man's body has been discovered in a van in a retail park in Oxford.

Police were called to Oxford Retail Park in the Cowley area of the city shortly before 12:30 BST.

Thames Valley Police said the death was being treated as unexplained, not suspicious.

Part of the Burger King car park where the body, believed to be of a man in his 40s, was found has been cordoned off and the restaurant is closed.

Police say he could have been in the van for up to a week and there are no indications of violence.

They were alerted to the scene by a member of the public.
