A MAN has been found crushed to death in a domestic garage – under a car on which he was doing maintenance.

Police said the horrific discovery was made by relatives of 23-year-old Dominic Christopher Hunt.

The man’s grandparents found his body after returning to their Lutton Marsh home from holiday in the early hours of Wednesday.

Police and paramedics were called to the home in South Drove at 1.45am, but the man was pronounced dead at the scene. It is not yet known how long his body had lain undiscovered.

One theory being worked upon is that jacks which the car was put upon had slipped or failed in some way.

South Drove is a very rural road with some distance between houses. The property where the tragedy happened is semi-detached and stands on its own.

A pensioner neighbour said yesterday that there was often work on vehicles next door. She was unaware of the incident.

Police said there were no suspicious circumstances and they will not be investigating further.

Mr Hunt, who lived with his grandparents, was a production worker in a Wisbech factory.

The inquest into his death is due to be opened at 8.30am today.
