POLICE have today confirmed the body of a man found in a field in Brandon is that of missing Polish man Roman Czaja.

Mr Czaja, 39, went missing on Thursday, July 19, after arriving in the country the day before to work in as a builder in Lakenheath.

Extensive enquiries were made to try to find him, including a poster campaign, daily searches of the surrounding area and a page on a Polish website.

Officers were called on the morning of Tuesday, July 31, to the discovery of a body in a field off Chalk Lane, in Brandon, by farm workers. A post mortem was unable to establish the cause of death but did establish that there were no suspicious circumstances surrounding the death.

Greater Suffolk coroner Dr Peter Dean has now confirmed, by the use of medical records, that the body is that of Mr Czaja, and his family in Poland have been informed.

An inquest into his death will be opened on due course.
