Police confirm body of man found in North Walsham

Police can confirm the body of a man was found in North Walsham this morning (Friday 23 November 2018).

It's after officers were called by a member of the public reporting a body of a man had been discovered in a field off Happisburgh Road.

While formal identification is yet to take place, it is believed to be that of 46-year-old Julian Gaunt who was reported missing from the area on Monday (19 November). Next of kin have been informed.

The death is currently being treated as unexplained, but detectives do not believe there are any suspicious circumstances and a file will now be prepared for the coroner.
