Investigations are continuing into the death of a man whose body was found at a flat in Dereham.

Police were called to the property on Friday, February 3 after concerns were raised for the safety of 48-year-old Stuart Yates.

Mr Yates' body was discovered inside but the cause of his death is still being treated as unexplained.

A Norfolk police spokesman said they were awaiting results of further tests after an initial post mortem examination proved inconclusive.

The spokesman said part of the ongoing investigation included carrying out house to house inquiries and going through CCTV.

Boundary Close is on the Pavilion Way estate, off Norwich Road.
