An eyewitness, who asked not to be named, said: “We were going to another flat when we saw the police and the ambulance there.

“There were police at the top of the stairs as well, but they didn’t give too much away. They just said the next of kin had been informed.”

A post-mortem is expected to be held this week to establish the cause of death.
