A MAN has been found dead near a playground in Lincolnshire.
The grim discovery was made in Haverstoe Park, Cleethorpes, by members of the public early this morning.
One witness told GrimsbyLive early morning joggers and dog-walkers were left shocked by the scene near Hardy’s Road.
Meanwhile kids on their way to school have been turned away.
The park has since been shut and a children’s play area in the grounds cordoned off.
A Humberside Police spokesperson told The Sun: “Officers are in attendance on Haverstoe Park in Cleethorpes following reports of a concern for safety at around 6.30am this morning.
“On arrival, a man was found deceased.
“The circumstances of his death are not being treated as suspicious and a file will now be prepared for the coroner.”
Haverstoe Park Pavilion wrote on Facebook: “We’ve been advised that areas of the park (including the children’s play area) have been cordoned off with no access this morning.
“At this time, we would suggest that people avoid heading through the park on their usual school run/walks until further information is available.
“We’re heading there shortly to learn more but it is likely that the cafe will be closed for the day.
“We will update with more information as soon as we can.”
