Police are treating the death of a man whose body was found at a house in Oxford as suspicious.

Thames Valley Police made the discovery after being called to the property in Iffley Road on Thursday. The man was pronounced dead at the scene.

Post-mortem tests to determine the cause of death are due later.

Iffley Road remains closed to drivers and pedestrians between The Plain and Circus Street and it is unclear when it will reopen.

Supt Christian Bunt said a "thorough investigation is being conducted" and CCTV was being reviewed.
