A 50-year-old man has been found dead in his south Cumbria flat.
Police were called to Yewbarrow Terrace, Grange, at 1.40pm yesterday after concerned neighbours raised the alarm.
Detective Sergeant Mike Wallace said the man had not been seen for several days.
He added that after receiving no response they had to force entry to the first floor flat and found the man in the living room.
The senior Barrow officer said: “An ambulance was called and the occupant was pronounced dead at the scene.
“He has not yet been formally identified but next of kin have been informed.
“We are treating it as an unexplained death and are looking into it on behalf of the coroner and will pass on our information to him tomorrow.”
