They were called to the house in Jasmin Close, The Rock, at 6pm on Friday after ambulance crews had attended.

Duty Inspector Jane Fitzpatrick said: "We were called to the house by the ambulance after a 42-year-old man died.

"His next of kin have been informed and a post-mortem has been carried out. This is now in the hands of the coroner.

"It is a very sad set of circumstances but when someone so relatively young has died then we have to attend."

One neighbour, who did not wish to be named, said: "A paramedic turned up at about half five and then an ambulance came later but then went again about 10 minutes later.

"The police have been outside the house ever since."

The police guard was removed on Saturday afternoon.
