An investigation has begun after a man died following a fire at a block of flats in Portsmouth.
The fire began in the fifth floor of Omega House, an eight-storey building in Omega Street, Southsea, on Monday afternoon.
The 53-year-old man was taken to hospital but later died.
Fire crews found a replica grenade and other replica firearms at the flat and residents were evacuated to a neighbouring community centre.
