A POST-mortem examination carried out on the body of a man found in a ditch in Haddenham has confirmed that there were no suspicious circumstances surrounding his death.
The post-mortem was carried out early on Friday morning by Dr Nat Cary at Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge, with results confirming that there was no foul play involved with the death.
The case will now be passed to the East Cambridgeshire Coroners' Office who will open an inquest into the cause of the death of the unknown man, whose body was discovered badly burnt.
The body was discovered by police in a ditch off the A1412 at Haddenham, close to Witcham Toll on Thursday morning.
Police and forensic teams were immediately called to the edge of a field near the Black Fen Waterway Trail to carry out detailed investigations led by DC Harding of Cambridgeshire CID.
Residents of nearby Staple Lees Farmhouse said they had seen and heard nothing until they were alerted by the arrival of a police helicopter overhead.
