shares

Police are investigating a suspected break-in at a property in Hunstanton where a man’s body was found.

The death of the man, in his 50s, on Monday, is not suspicious and will be passed to the coroner for an inquest.

As a result of enquiries, police are now investigating the possibility that the home in Elizabeth Close may have recently been targeted by burglars and are appealing for witnesses to suspicious activity in the area.

A local man has been arrested on suspicion of burglary and released on police bail pending further enquiries.

Det Insp Stuart Chapman said: “Following a Home Office post mortem, we are entirely satisfied that the man’s death is not suspicious. However, as a result of our enquiries, we are now investigating whether the property was recently broken into and items stolen.

“We are therefore keen to hear from anyone who witnessed any suspicious activity at or around the property in recent days or who may have any further information that can assist our enquiries.”

Police were called to Elizabeth Close at 2.15pm on Monday after concerns were raised for the welfare of a man at the address.

An inquest into his death will be opened in due course.
