The centre had to close yesterday, Thursday, September 16, after the body of a man in his 30s was discovered there after officers were called to a fear for welfare report just after 4.30am.

In a statement the police said the man's death was "being treated as unexplained but not suspicious, and his next of kin has been informed".

The Nature Discovery Centre is run by the Berkshire Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire Wildlife Trust.
