Man from Essex found dead after child grooming allegations

A man has been found dead in Essex after being accused of child grooming

A man's been found dead at his home in Essex - days after being accused of child grooming by a self-styled 'paedophile hunter'.

He was arrested on Saturday. Earlier he had been confronted and filmed by Christopher Wood, also known as 'Catfish the Hunter', who tries to expose suspected paedophiles.

Police aren't treating the death of the 44-year-old as suspicious and have referred the case to the police watchdog.
