DETECTIVES investigating the death of a man in Woodchurch say they are not treating it as suspicious.

Police were called to Ganneys Meadow Road shortly on Sunday afternoon by a friend. 

On arrival they found the body of a 43-year-old man inside a room in the property.

The house was cordoned off and an investigation into the circumstances is underway.

House-to-house enquiries have been carried out and a post mortem examination will be held in due course.

The man's next of kin have been informed.

A file is being prepared for the coroner.
