The cause of death of a man whose body was found this morning in Woodberry Down is being treated as “unexplained”.

Police and the London Ambulance Service were called just after 7am this morning after a body was found in Newnton Close, near the junction of Seven Sisters Road and Amhurst Park.

The man was pronounced dead at the scene.

A police spokesman said: “The death is being treated as unexplained at this early stage and enquiries into the circumstances are being carried out.”

Police have not been able to identify the man hence his next of kin have therefore not been informed of his death.
