Police were called to Tollington Road at 4pm on Saturday after the man's body was discovered.

Scotland Yard said a man was being held after he was arrested yesterday. Detectives are still trying to identify the man who died.

The incident came days after the Gazette reported on the problems with drug dealing and using in and around the supermarket's car park.

A neighbour said people "smoking crack" and "screaming" outside her house in Shelburne Road has become part of the daily routine. Police told the Gazette there was an "enhanced team" of officers patrolling the area in response to the issues.

There is no suggestion the death is linked to the drug problems.
