Police are currently speaking to neighbours and acquaintances of the deceased.

They will review police and ambulance records for the address as part of the ongoing investigation.

A neighbour who didn't want to be named said adults lived in the house, not children, and that they were "nice people".

Beard said police were unable to release the man's name as his next of kin had not yet been located.
