Police have launched an investigation after a man’s body was found in a pond.
West Mercia Police said the unidentified man was discovered in the water near Chaucer Street in Kidderminster yesterday.
The scene was cordoned off by officers while investigation work continued, police said. Residents said they were shocked at the incident, especially at this time of year.
Rachel Cadwallader, an 88-year-old great-grandmother-of-two, said: “I got up late and at first I thought there must have been an accident on the corner. This is not something you expect to happen at all, and certainly not on Boxing Day.”
