A 33-year-old man has died after being found with serious wrist injuries by emergency services in a field in Newbury Park.
Around 1pm yesterday, the man, from Newbury Park, was reported missing.
A police search found him in a field off Oaks Lane, Newbury Park, near the Central Line track, with serious injuries to his wrist.
Officers and London’s Air Ambulance also attended but the man was pronounced dead at the scene.
The incident has been referred to the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) regarding time the man spent in police custody three days earlier, after being arrested for cultivating cannabis.
Next of kin have been informed.
The death is being treated as non-suspicious and the coroner has been notified.
Whilst officers believe they know who the deceased is, they await a formal identification.
The Directorate of Professional Standards has since informed the IPCC of the death following police contact and a formal referral will follow.
