Police are trying to piece together how a 28-year-old who was last seen leaving a nightclub ended up dead in a waste recycling centre.

Ben Farr, from St Leonards, was discovered by workers at the Ford waste recycling centre on the Rudford Industrial Estate on April 22.

Offices are trying to piece together the man’s movements prior to his death.

He is understood to have links to the St Leonards and Hastings areas and was known to visit Brighton.

Detective Sergeant Jason Vickers said: "We have managed to build up a good picture of Ben's movements over the previous week and over the Friday evening into early Saturday morning which was April 19.

"Ben was last seen leaving the Boutique nightclub in Brighton and walking into the city. We are appealing for witnesses or anyone who knew Ben who saw him between early the hours of Saturday April 19 through to Monday April 21 to contact police.

"Although Ben's death is not considered suspicious we are eager to establish his movements and provide answers to his family."
