Body in field 'not suspicious'
Forensic officers are at the scene near Milwr
Officers will continue to try to identify the dead man
Police have said they are not treating the discovery of a badly decomposed body in a Flintshire field as suspicious.

The body was found partly buried near the small hamlet of Milwr by the landlord of a nearby pub.

Officers from North Wales Police will continue their inquiries to try to identify the man.

A post mortem examination was carried out at Glan Clwyd Hospital on Tuesday. The coroner has also been informed.

The owner of the Glan-yr-afon pub was said to be shocked following his discovery on Monday afternoon.

The piece of land where the body was found used to be part of the construction site when the A55, the main road through north Wales was being built.

It is now rough ground and is believed to be owned by the Glan-yr-afon pub.
