A SUFFOLK homeowner made a grisly discovery today when they woke up to find a crashed car in their garden with the body of a man inside.

The discovery was made by the resident living in Bury Road, Cockfield at around 7am today after the car had ploughed through their garden hedge.

A police spokesman said: “We are unsure when any car crash may have happened.

“No motorists have reported it over night and the resident did not hear any noise.

“The vehicle was hidden from the road because of the hedge so it is possible it had been there for some time.

“The driver was a young man who was found dead in the driver's seat.”
