An area in the old Rose Lane car park, off Mountergate, was sealed off as officers began an investigation.

A cordon was placed around part of a yard behind the new multi-storey Rose Lane car park.

Several police vehicles were at the scene throughout Sunday and officers could be seen in an area leading to the yard beside industrial units that were formerly car workshops.
