Man's Body Found In Burned-Out Car Near Melton Mowbray, Leicestershire

A police investigation is underway after the body of a man was found in a burned-out car.

Leicestershire Police said they were alerted by the fire service who had been called to put out a vehicle blaze at about 12.45am in the early hours of today, only to discover a man's remains inside.

The man's death is being treated as suspicious and an 18-year-old man, arrested in connection with the incident, remains in custody.

Police want to speak with anyone who saw anything suspicious in the area where the car was found in Water Lane at Frisby on the Wreake, near Melton Mowbray.

Officers are also keen to speak with anyone who attended the music event the Fristock Festival, which was held near the scene on Saturday, as they believe people who attended may have information useful to the inquiry.
