Police are investigating after a body was found at a university student accommodation block in Norwich.

Emergency services were called to Pablo Fanque House in All Saints Green, close to John Lewis, shortly after midday on Monday.

Tenants at the block include students from the city's two universities, though the block is privately owned.

A spokesman for the University of East Anglia said its security staff were helping police with their inquiries.

A cordon was put in place while investigations took place. The death is being treated as unexplained, but police do not believe the death is suspicious.

A police presence was still in the area, close to the city centre, late on Monday afternoon with a forensics team on scene. 

Officers said a file would be prepared and passed on to the coroner.
