More than 70 names have been given to detectives in the two years since the remains of a man were discovered near the Bathurst Estate in Cirencester.

A forestry worker discovered the man’s body near the A419 Stroud Road on May 1, 2018.

Last year, police released an artist’s reconstruction of the man’s face in the hope someone would recognise the mystery man.

73 names were put forward by members of the public. 51 have been ruled out, with detectives looking into the remaining 22 suggested names.

Det Insp Alistair Hammett said: "I would like to thank everyone who submitted information following our appeal last year as this has allowed us to undertake significant follow-up enquiries.

"At this stage I am not appealing for further information on the man's identity as a number of lines of enquiry remain such as speaking to those who are known to the individuals and cross referencing against missing people and DNA databases."

Examination of his teeth suggested the man could have been aged between 28 and 31. His skeleton suggested a man aged between 28 and 55.

Police said last year they believed the man's body could have been in the woodland for up to 18 months
