Decomposed body found - Wigan
Tuesday 31st October, 2006

An area off Prescott Street in Wigan is currently cordoned off after a decomposed body was discovered at 10.15am yesterday morning, Monday 30 October 2006.

The body was found by police officers conducting a search as part of the ongoing investigation into the whereabouts of missing man Simon Penk who was last seen at home in Beech Hill in May this year. At this stage however, it is too early to say whether the body is that of Simon.

Officers are at the scene and the area where the body is has been cordoned off so that forensic investigations can be carried out.

A post mortem examination to establish the cause of death will be carried out later this week, and investigations into whether this death was suspicious are ongoing.

There are no road closures in place.
