Police have confirmed that the unexplained death of a man in Norwich is not being treated as suspicious.

Officers were called to a flat in Chantry Road shortly after 12.50am on Sunday, September 7 after reports the body of a man had been found inside a flat on the third floor.

The man, aged in his early 30s, was pronounced dead at the scene and the death is currently being treated as unexplained.

Forensic officers left the scene at about 11am, but two police officers remained stationed outside the flat.

One neighbour said she was only aware something had happened when she saw police outside at about 3.30am. Other residents of the block of flats, which is in the same structure as the intu Chapelfield shopping centre, said they had not seen or heard anything during the night.

The death comes six weeks after a man in his 40s died at the bottom of a flight of stairs at the entrance to the same block of flats.
