The family of a man found dead in the street following a suspected attempted burglary have been informed of his death, although he has yet to be formally identified.

The 34-year-old from Waltham Abbey was found by a woman in an alleyway off Mason Way, Waltham Abbey at 1pm yesterday.

Local reports suggested the man died after a fence panel collapsed onto him.

Two men were arrested yesterday on suspicion of burglary and remain in custody.

A post mortem examination is due to take place today and the man's name will be released once he has been formally identified.
