Burn­ing body sparks probe

Midweek Sport - - FRONT PAGE -

THE charred re­mains of a body found un­der a pile of burn­ing de­bris fol­low­ing a fire in a su­per­mar­ket car park have sparked a po­lice in­ves­ti­ga­tion.

A po­lice dog han­dler on a rou­tine pa­trol spot­ted the blaze, in the car park of a Sains­bury’s at 3am.

Fire­fight­ers quickly ex­tin­guished the fire but cops dis­cov­ered the body in the ashes.

The uniden­ti­fi­able body was found in be­tween trol­ley shel­ters in the car park, next to sev­eral bins.

A po­lice spokesman in Chip­pen­ham, Wilts, said: “It is too early to say whether this in­ci­dent is sus­pi­cious but en­quiries continue.

“We are ask­ing for any­one in the area at the time to come for­ward.”
