Police investigating a man’s death in Market Harborough this morning (Tuesday) have confirmed in the past few minutes that it is NOT being treated as suspicious.

Detectives and scene-of-crime officers were seen outside a house today in Medora Close on the new Farndon Fields housing estate on the south-west of town.

A statement from Leicestershire Police at 10.46am today read: “Police were called to Medora Close in Market Harborough at around 9.14pm yesterday (Monday) following concerns about the occupant of the house.

“The body of a man was discovered in the property.

“The circumstances surrounding the death are under investigation.

“The property has been cordoned off to allow for a forensic examination to take place and enquiries are in their early stages.”

Then, at 11.07am, a police spokeswoman called the Mail to confirm that there are no suspicious circumstances relating to the death.

According to nearby residents firefighters were called out at one point last night and had to batter the home’s front door in, to gain access to the property.

Houses on the new Farndon Fields housing estate are being built by developer David Wilson Homes with up to 600 homes allowed at the site following a planning inspector’s ruling in 2006.
