A 24-YEAR-OLD man was found dead by police officers after a car crashed into a fence and ended up in a field.

Police are appealing for witnesses following a collision at the junction of Old House Lane and Newtown Lane in Romsley, Worcestershire in the early hours of Saturday, August 8.

The car is also believed to have crashed into a tree before coming to a stop in a field.

The vehicle was later reported by a passerby at around 3pm the following day.

Officers attended and found a 24-year-old man dead inside the car.

A spokesman for West Mercia Police said: "We are appealing to anyone who may have seen the collision or seen the vehicle prior to the collision. It has travelled from the Birmingham area."

Anyone with information on the crash is urged to contact Sergeant Liam Bennett on 101, quoting reference 453i.
