In a statement released this afternoon, a spokesman for Suffolk police said: “Further inquiries have now been carried out at the property on Northgate Street where a man in his 50s was found deceased this morning.

“Whilst the death remains unexplained, there are not thought to be any suspicious circumstances. The death is now being referred to the coroner.”
