“We’re now taking out exactly what happened,” he said.

“We don’t know what the substance is. We’ve done some initial research, we know the risk is low. As I mentioned, anyone who comes into direct contact with the body should seek medical advice if they feel unwell, but there is no greater risk to others.”

The body was found on Kilburn Avenue on uneven ground between neighboring houses leading to a dirt track and open fields.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to contact officials.
