A BODY has been found in a Southampton park.

Hampshire police have confirmed that a body was found at Woodmill in Riverside Park on Sunday.

The force said it is not being treated as suspicious but further details have yet to be released.

The Daily Echo understands the body was found in the park yesterday evening, a few hours after a bomb was found in the nearby river. 

As previously reported, the park was cordoned off at around 1pm yesterday when a fisherman, who was magnet fishing in the River Itchen, found a bomb in the water.
