POLICE are making enquiries at a house in Selston following the discovery of a man’s body.

Officers were called to the house on Church Lane by an ambulance crew at 9.35am yesterday.

The man is believed to be the householder, aged in his 70s, and his death is not being treated as suspicious at this stage. A file is being prepared for the coroner.

However, a cordon remains in place while detectives investigate evidence to suggest there may have been a burglary at the house. This is believed to have taken place after the man’s death.

A 33-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of burglary and bailed pending further enquiries.

Anyone with any information should contact Nottinghamshire Police on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
