A man has been arrested on suspicion of murder after a man’s body was found inside a wheelie bin in north London.

The body was discovered near a Waitrose supermarket on Tollington Road in Islington shortly before 16:00 BST on Saturday.

Scotland Yard said that while the death was being treated as unexplained, a 52-year-old man had been arrested on suspicion of murder on Sunday.

He is currently in custody at a north London police station.

A spokesperson for the Met said detectives were still trying to establish the identity of the body and were awaiting the results of a post mortem.
