Post mortem due to take place on unexplained death

A POLICE cordon remains outside a flat in west Suffolk where the body of a man was discovered yesterday.

The body of the man - believed to be in his 40s - was found after police gained entry to the property in the Babergh owned block of flats in Blackfriars, Sudbury, just after 10.30am.

A police spokesman said the death was still being treated as unexplained and they were appealing for information from the public.

A post mortem is due to take place this afternoon.

Police were alerted on Saturday morning following a call from a woman who was concerned for the safety of her neighbour.
