A police inquiry has been launched after a man's body was found in the road.

The body was found on Monument Road in Woking, Surrey, in the early hours of Sunday morning.

Surrey Police said officers were at the scene shortly after the alarm was raised by a member of the public at 3am.

They were trying to identify the man's next-of-kin, who have yet to be informed.

Sergeant Eddie Ryan said: "We are currently working to establish the exact circumstances of this incident but believe the man has been hit by possibly more than one vehicle.

"If you were on this road last night or know someone that was, please can you get in touch with us as we need to understand what happened.

"We would also been keen to hear from anyone who has a dashcam that drove down this road last night before it was closed as this may have captured valuable information that could be useful for our investigation."

The road will remain closed while officers continue their investigations, the force said.

Anyone with information is asked to call Surrey Police on 101 (999 in an emergency) or use report.police.uk and quote the reference number P17254749.
