The body of a man has been found in a car on a country lane.

Hertfordshire Constabulary were called by a member of the public who had discovered a man dead in a Ford Fiesta in a layby in Dawes Lane, Sarratt, at around 4.15pm yesterday.

Paramedics were called, but the man, believed to be in his 30s, was pronounced dead at the scene.

His next of kin have been informed.

At this stage the man’s death is not being treated as suspicious and a post mortem will happen in due course.
