Body found by primary school children

A GROUP of primary school children found a dead body as they started their first day of their Easter Holidays.

The boy was playing with a group of friends when he made the grim discovery in a clump of trees and bushes at Coronation Park, Bradley, around 4pm on Saturday.

Police sealed off the spot, which was down a steep bank, for several hours before the body was removed shortly after 9pm.

The spokesman added that a post-mortem examination would be conducted in due course but said police were not looking for anybody else in connection with the death at the moment.
