A dead body believed to be of a teenager was found in a busy park in London this morning.
The Metropolitan Police said a man was found unresponsive in Victoria Park, in east London.
Officers were called to the scene at 6.54am today.
The force said it was a non-suspicious death and that the dead man is believed to be in his teens.
Police taped off a section of the public park, with a police car park pictured at the scene.
A body bag was pictured at the scene today, with police officers wearing face masks standing next to it.
The park, which opens at 7am, is highly popular with families and runners, with many residents visiting it for their daily exercise during lockdown.
Over the weekend, hundreds of people were pictured visiting the area as Brits adjusted to being back in a national lockdown again.
Last year, it temporarily closed for two weeks during the first lockdown in March to stop people breaching coronavirus social distancing rules.
Tower Hamlets Council reopened it in April, but introduced several measures in a bid to encourage people to keep to the guidelines.
Regular patrols by the parks team have now been introduced, according to the local authority.
It comes as the UK’s most senior police officer warned people flouting lockdown rules are more likely to be fined.
Met Police commissioner Dame Cressida Dick wrote in the Times: “It is preposterous to me that anyone could be unaware of our duty to do all we can to stop the spread of the virus.”
But she said Boris Johnson did not break the law when he took a bike ride seven miles from Downing Street.
The Prime Minister sparked controversy after it emerged he went on a cycle ride in the Olympic Park in Stratford, east London at the weekend after imposing strict restrictions.
Official regulations say exercise is limited to once a day and you should not leave your local area.
The Met Police chief said her interpretation of the term ‘local’ for exercise was whether you could “go for your exercise from your front door and come back to your front door”.
Figures show the UK's Covid-19 death toll rose by 529 on Monday, with another 46,169 cases reported.
Policing Minister Kit Malthouse said officers are going to be “very high profile”, which would be a "challenge" for British policing.
He told Times Radio: “It is certainly part of the police's job to stop people and enquire as to the reason why they are out of their house.
“But such is the seriousness of the situation that we face that I think we are all agreed there is no other option. “
