The scene in Tollington Road where the body was found in the bin

NEIGHBOURS said they were “terrified” as a body was found in a bin in Holloway.

Police were called to Tollington Road by the junction with Annette Road to reports of a man’s body found in a wheelie bin yesterday (Saturday) at 4pm.

A father-of-two who lives close said: “I was standing there talking to the police officer last night and I didn’t know the body was in the bin.

“Then forensics turned up, about 10 of them in jumpsuits. It is crazy.

“It is terrifying when you have a wife and two daughters and this kind of thing happens.”

Detectives have cordoned off the area while they investigate and are trying to establish the man’s identity.

Enquiries continue and anyone with information should call police on 101.
