UPDATE: Fresh appeal after body found in Ford


POLICE have issued another appeal for information after a man’s body was found at Ford waste site.

Ben Farr’s body was discovered as workers at the South Coast Skips site on the Rudford Industrial Estate were in the process of sorting waste on April 22.



Officers have been trying to build a picture of Ben’s coming and goings over the bank holiday between April 18 and 21.

The 28-year-old from St Leonards had links to St Leonards and Hastings and was known to frequent the Brighton area.

Detective Sergeant Jason Vickers said: “We have managed to build up a good picture of Ben’s movements over the previous week and over the Friday evening into early Saturday morning which was 19 April.

“Ben was last seen leaving the Boutique nightclub in Brighton and walking into the city.

“We are appealing for witnesses or anyone who knew Ben who saw him between early the hours of Saturday 19 April through to Monday 21 April to contact police.

“Although Ben’s death is not considered suspicious we are eager to establish his movements and provide answers to his family.”
