POLICE have so far been unable to contact the next of kin of a man whose body was found in Poole Park on Friday morning.

Dorset Police officers were hoping to speak to them today.

They would not confirm the man’s age until the next of kin had been informed.

The body of the man was found by a council worker at the rear of the toilet block near the West Gate entrance.

Police said the death is not being treated as suspicious at this stage.

The park was fully open to the public for the weekend.

The coroner has been informed.
