Dead man found in car

Police have cordoned off a Christchurch road after a man's body has been found in a vehicle.

Superintendent Land Todd says police were called to Guys Road in Yaldhurst about 7am, following a report from a highly-distressed man in a vehicle.

"Police attempted to negotiate with the man for over an hour, however, they later located him deceased in the vehicle.

"Police are not looking for anyone else and the case will be referred to the coroner."
