Officers were called by the ambulance service to attend a property in Chipperfield Drive at around 8.20pm on Friday, after a 22-year-old man was seriously injured.

He was taken to hospital but sadly died in the early hours of today (Saturday 26 March). A forensic post-mortem examination will now be carried out to determine the cause of death.
