Death of man found in Northampton street 'unexplained'

The body of a man has been found in a Northampton street in what police have described as unexplained circumstances.

Emergency services were called to Clare Street in the town, near the junction of Kettering Road, at about 06:00 BST on Sunday and found the dead man.

A Northamptonshire Police spokesman said officers were investigating but were unable to say whether there were any suspicious circumstances.

A post-mortem examination is due to be carried out later.

Parts of Kettering Road, Clare Street and Talbot Road have been closed for police inquiries, which are being handled by the force's major investigation team.
