Two Men Found Dead In Car In North Lincolnshire Identified

Two men have been found dead in a car in north Lincolnshire displaying warnings not to enter due to potentially harmful chemicals.

A full-scale chemical incident operation was activated by police and firefighters after a resident spotted the suspicious vehicle on the banks of the River Humber at Booth Nooking Lane, in Winteringham.

A Humberside Police spokesman said the bodies of two adult males were recovered from the car.

He said: ``Police initially attended the scene and found a red coloured car containing two adult men who showed no apparent sign of life.

``On the outside of the car there were signs warning people not to enter due to potentially harmful chemicals within.

``This prompted a chemical safety response from police, ambulance service and Humberside Fire and Rescue in order to secure the area and the vehicle with a view to safely entering the vehicle to recover the two men from within.

``Sadly the men were found to be deceased when assessed by paramedics.''

Police, who have not yet named the men, said both were in their 40s and one was from North East Lincolnshire and the other from the West Midlands.
