Police investigating unexplained death on Wyatt Road, Kempston


Bedfordshire Police are investigating an unexplained death on Wyatt Road, Kempston.

They were called to a home there just after 6am this morning after reports of the sudden death of a man.

Officers attended and carried out enquiries, but the death is not believed to be suspicious.

The road is closed at the High Street end while police gather evidence.

Earlier reports that there was a stabbing in the area have been played down as rumour.
