Detectives are investigating after a man’s body was found in a road in Wimbledon.

Police were called at around 5:40am on Tuesday (21 January) to a report of a body in the road on Durnsford Road. 

Officers attended along with colleagues from the London Ambulance Service and medics pronounced the man dead at the scene.

“We are in the process of tracing the man’s next of kin.

“This tragic incident has caused disruption to people locally who we’d like to thank for their co-operation.”

Anyone with information that may assist police should call police via 101, quoting reference Cad 1025/21Jan.
