A spokesperson for British Transport Police said: “Officers are continuing to work to identify the person and inform their next of kin.”

A driver has arrested on suspicion of drug driving after a crash closed the A15 from Leasingham to Holdingham roundabout on Monday morning.

Three vehicles were involved in the crash, which caused the road to be closed at around 9am on Monday, June 28. The vehicles were a blue Mondeo, a black Mercedes and a black Ford Transit.

Lincolnshire Police said that there were no serious injuries.

British Transport Police said also attended the scene and advised people to avoid the area for the foreseeable future.
