Two men have been arrested after the "unexplained" death of a man at The Dorchester hotel.

Police were called to the five-star venue in Mayfair on Friday evening following reports that a man was unresponsive in one of the rooms.

Ambulance crews arrived, but the man in his 40s - reportedly an Arab tourist - was pronounced dead at the scene.

Two men who were arrested in connection with the death have been bailed to a date in June, Scotland Yard said.

The Dorchester describes itself as "one of the world's most iconic hotels" and is a favourite choice of celebrities, world leaders and royalty.

A spokeswoman for the Dorchester Hotel confirmed the death of a guest and added: "Our thoughts are with the family and friends of the deceased."
