Police investigating the discovery of a body at a derelict house in Whitby on Saturday, say they believe it is that of a local man - and they are not treating the death as suspicious. The body was found in the house in Broomfield Terrace by a workman carrying out renovation work.
Police initially said the death was being treated as "unexplained." The property was sealed off and an investigation launched. But on Sunday afternoon, North Yorkshire Police said there was nothing to suggest that there were any suspicious circumstances surrounding the death.
Officers say they do not expect to be in a position to release the man's identity for some time.
