A MAN has been found dead in mysterious circumstances as temperatures plunge to -6C.
The body was found the middle of a road in Wimbledon, West London, at around 5.40am today.
Scotland Yard have now launched a probe into the incident but refused to comment on the circumstances of the death.
A spokeswoman for Met Police said: “Officers were called to a report of a body in the road in Durnsford Road, SW19.
"A man was pronounced dead at the scene. No vehicle had stopped at the location.”
It comes as Brits have been warned to brace themselves for chilly conditions this week as temperatures plunged over night.
The low temperature in the south prompted a cold weather alert to be issued by Public Health England (PHE) on Sunday which will last to 6pm this evening.
Dr Owen Landeg, principal environmental public health scientist at PHE, said: "Below 18 degrees, changes to the body mean that the risk of strokes, heart attacks and chest infections increase so heating homes to this temperature is particularly important to stay well."
Anyone with information on the incident in Wimbledon should call 101, quoting CAD1025/Jan21
