Surrey man found dead in recycling bin

The body of a 23-year-old man was found in a textiles recycling bin in Guildford Surrey, on the morning of 18 August.

The body was identified as James John Hubert Evans who was from the town.

Police are not treating the death as suspicious.

Mr Evans was discovered by a member of the public just before 5.30am at a bin in a leisure centre .

The discovery lead to the police closing the car park and adjoining park-and-ride facility for several hours.

Initially, the Health and Safety Executive was informed of the incident but has since found there to be no health and safety risk to the public.

A post-mortem examination is taking place on 20 August at the Royal Surrey County Hospital and an inquest into the death is expected to be opened by the end of the week.
