THE skeleton of a Spanish man still wearing his pyjamas in bed is believed to have gone undiscovered for over 15 years.

The body was found at an abandoned house in the French city of Lille by health and safety officials, along with unopened post dating back to 1996.

The elderly man, who was born in 1921 and appears to have lived alone, is thought to have died of natural causes.

Police are trying to track down if the man has any surviving relatives in Spain.
