An investigation has been launched after a man was found dead in a barn in north Essex.
Police were contacted shortly before 8am today with reports that a man had been injured inside a barn on a farm off Monks Lodge Road in Great Maplestead.
Officers arrived and found the body of a local man in his 30s by the side of a tractor.
The death is not being treated as suspicious and a joint investigation involving Essex Police’s Serious Collision Investigation Unit and the Health & Safety Executive is now underway to establish what led to the man’s death.
A file will be prepared for HM Coroner ahead of an inquest.
