We are investigating following the discovery of a man’s body in the back of a van that was on fire in Burton.
We were called to Paget Street by Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service at 7.55pm this evening (Sunday 13 August) after they were called about a van fire.
A man’s body was recovered from the van once fire crews had dealt with the fire.
The death is currently being treated as unexplained. A post mortem will be carried out in due course to establish the cause of death.
We are keen to speak to anyone with any dashcam footage from the area or those with any information which could help.
Call us on 101, quoting incident 637 of 13 August, or message us using Live Chat on our website – www.staffordshire.police.uk
