Two teenagers have been arrested in connection with a burglary at a house where a man's body was found.

Officers forced entry into the house in Meadwell Road, Leicester at 11:00 GMT on Monday after receiving a call from a member of the public.

Police said the death was still being treated as unexplained, but it was not thought to be connected to the suspected burglary at this stage.

Two people, aged 14 and 18, were arrested on Tuesday and bailed.

A force spokeswoman said they could not confirm whether the alleged offence had taken place before or after the man's death.

A post-mortem examination has been carried out to determine the circumstances of his death but further tests are being conducted.
