A post mortem proved inconclusive and police are awaiting the results of further tests while forensic enquiries are continuing at the scene.

Officers are also in the area to carry out house to house enquiries and to reassure residents.

DI Warren Hines from Force CID said: "Police are appealing for anyone in the local area who may have information or anyone who saw any suspicious activity around the flat in Bakeman House recently to contact Force CID on 101 or call Crimestoppers confidentially on 0800 555111."
