POLICE and paramedics were called to Poole Park yesterday morning after a body was discovered by a council worker. 

Emergency services went to the scene at around 7.40am and found the body of a man.

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

A spokesman from Dorset Police said: “At 7.40 Dorset Police received reports that a body of a man had been discovered at Poole Park.”

“The death is not being treated as suspicious and the coroner has been informed. The next of kin have not yet been informed.”

The body is believed to have been discovered near public toilets at the West Gate entrance to the park.

A section of the park was cordoned off while the body was recovered from the scene.

The park was fully re-opened at around 10am.

David Barton, of Alverton Avenue, who was walking his dog shortly after the body was found, said he was shocked by the news.

“We were walking around the lake and we heard the sirens,” the 68-year-old said.

“Then we saw the police cars - one was parked in the grounds and another one on the road.”

He added: “I have been walking my dog here for the last two years and have never seen anything like it.”

Marian Davis, who was also walking her dog in the park, described the news as “heartbreaking”.

“It’s very sad,” she said.

“I bring my grandchildren down here It could have been a child that came in and found him. It doesn’t bear thinking about.”

Nobody told us what was going on, we don't know whether the park's going to be open.

"There are about six police cars and they have cordoned it off.

"We don't know whether they will open the other end of the park to traffic at 10am (when vehicles are normally allowed in), but they're still allowing walkers through

She sounds like 1 confused lady!

Bonkey, people round here need to realise that, when you stick the 3 contiguous towns together, plus close satelites like Wimborne for example, you have a big 'city'. It's gonna have 'big city' problems, and by the way, could use 'big city' infrasturcture.

It should come as no huge surprise to Dorset Police or Poole Council staff and contractors or even long term local residents:
This is not the first body that has been discovered in Poole Park and I doubt that it will be the last.
If memory serves correctly they are normally found in the early morning by either park staff or a dog walker.
Not pleasant to be the finder, particularly if you have never had dealings with dead people before but as it says it is 'not suspicious' 'so not a crime and no danger of the demon mad axeman leaping out on his next victim.

Yankee1 says... When people die, a body is left behind.

Very true. If this is a suicide (likely) then where else would people like him to kill himself? Suicide isn't illegal (assisting is) so in the eyes of the law this man has done nothing wrong although I expect Poole Council are annoyed they can't do him for littering !

Unless you do it at home then it has to be done outside or car. Perhaps at home wasn't an option for him. Perhaps he was homeless or had people there that would stop him, e.t.c

Many people who commit suicide choose a beautiful spot for it. Poole park is such a place.
There is a 530ft sheer drop cliff in East Sussex that around 20 people a year use to depart this world, I can't remember it's name though, I'm sure it will come to me later.

Japan has one of the highest suicide rates with about 30,000 a year (we have about 6,000). The Japanese almost always do it outside. Although not usually religious they do belive in spirits and an afterlife so are mindful not to use a house as the next occupants would be scared of the spirit that dwells there.

When someone there does use a house for suicide it renders it basically un-sellable and un-rentable. I read a story recently about a landlord that sued the family of a young man that had killed himself in one of the landlords houses and thus rendered it un-rentable. The landlord won 60k from them.
In such cases the family are held liable even though none of them lived there.

We are all going to die and leave a body somewhere, someday, that someone will find and have to deal with. The fact that this man chose to leave the 'party' early and not stay till the end makes no difference really.

I read a story recently about a landlord that sued the family of a young man that had killed himself in one of the landlords houses and thus rendered it un-rentable. The landlord won 60k from them. In such cases the family are held liable even though none of them lived there. We are all going to die and leave a body somewhere, someday, that someone will find and have to deal with. The fact that this man chose to leave the 'party' early and not stay till the end makes no difference really.[/p][/quote]or maybe this poor man had a heart attack. My thoughts are with the family bubbles20

There's nothing in these reports or any of the other reports about deaths in the area recently that indicate people killed themselves because of a change in benefit policy. People kill themselves or are killed for all sorts of reasons.
