An investigation has been launched after a man was found dead at an Army base in Shropshire.

The body was discovered at Clive Barracks in Tern Hill on Sunday morning.

A Ministry of Defence spokesperson said that the circumstances of the death are being investigated but West Mercia Police said they are not treating it as suspicious.

“It is with great sympathy that we can confirm the death of an individual at Clive Barracks,” they said.

“The circumstances surrounding this death are being investigated and it would be inappropriate to comment any further at this time.

“Our thoughts are with the individual’s family and friends.”

Clive Barracks is the current base of the 1st battalion of the Royal Irish Regiment.

Amy Singleton of West Mercia Police said: "We were contacted at 10.37am yesterday with a concern for safety at an address in Tern Hill.

"Police attended and a man was pronounced deceased. It is not thought to be suspicious and has now been referred to the coroner."
