The police say they are investigating the discovery of two bodies in Leeds, found just 24 hours apart.

The first was found in a stretch of water in Pudsey Road, near the Wickes roundabout, on Saturday morning.

Parts of the road were sealed off for most of the day.

Then around 6am on Sunday, another dead body was found on the hard shoulder of the M621, westbound at junction four.

The motorway was sealed off and police are investigating the possibility the man fell to his death from the flyover bridge.

He’s not been identified but it’s believed he’s from the Leeds area.

Police are not treating the death as suspicious and his family have been told.

Yesterday a spokeswoman for West Yorkshire Police said “Just after 6am this morning we were called to a report of a male laid on the hard shoulder. Police and ambulance were at the scene. The male was found to be deceased at the time. Investigations are ongoing.”

Police say the deaths are not linked.
