Police were called to the property at 2.45pm on Friday after concerns were raised for the safety of a man at the flat.

Police discovered his body inside but the cause of his death is still being treated as unexplained as a post mortem examination has so far proved inconclusive.

A seal at the address is likely to remain in place over the coming days whilst the investigation continues by detectives from the Joint Major Investigation Team.

Detectives are keen to speak to anyone who may have seen or spoke to Stuart Yates at the end of last week or believe they could have information to assist.
