The A13 was closed near Ferry Lane yesterday as police discovered a dead body in a car.
Police were called at around 10.38am to a report of a body in a car parked at the Ferry Lane exit on the London-bound carriageway.
The man was dead at the scene.
Police believe that he was in his 70s, and that they know his identity. Although formal identification is yet to take place, next of kin have been informed.
Two lanes of the carriageway were closed off while officers investigated, and were re-opened at 1.45pm.
The death is being treated as ‘unexplained’, but not ‘suspicious’. A post-mortem will be held in due course.
