West Mercia Police said they called to reports of a man being in cardiac arrest and that he was pronounced dead at the scene.

Ambulances attended and left the scene around two hours later as detectives began their investigation.

Police vans and tape blocked off the entrance to Midland Mews from Charlton Street on Saturday and the residents' car park was also cordoned off as forensic investigators scoured the scene.

Neighbours in the area reported that a man had been attacked but police only confirmed that the man's death was being treated as murder today.

Detective Chief Inspector Mark Bellamy said: “ We would like to reassure the community that we believe this to be an isolated incident at a private residence.”
