A BODY has been found behind a skip at the back of Eltham train station today (September 27).
Police confirmed they were called at 10.30am to reports of a body in a skip next to the car park at the back of the station.

It is understood that a manager at the station found the body this morning and contacted police and paramedics.

“BTP and Metropolitan Police officers attended the incident, which was reported to BTP at 10.30am and is currently being treated as non-suspicious.
