Inquiry after man's body found in Edinburgh flat

An investigation has begun after police discovered the body of a 73-year-old man in his Edinburgh flat.

Neighbours have been reported as saying he could have been lying there for two months.

A Police Scotland spokesman said officers were called to the flat in Northfield Avenue last Thursday after concerns were raised about the pensioner.

The force said there were no suspicious circumstances.
