POLICE have launched a murder inquiry after a corpse was found floating in the Blue Lagoon at Arlesey on Sunday afternoon.

The body was found by two men walking around the lagoon who alerted other men to their find.

One of the men, from Stotfold, said today about the grisly find: "We were sitting around in the sun when these two fellows came up and said about something floating in the water and there was a terrible smell.

"We went over and there was a body wrapped in sacking and the smell was terrible. We could see there was no head on the body and by the length of the sack I doubt whether it had any legs."

Police have yet to confirm whether the head and legs were missing from the body and are expected to release a statement within the next hour.
