Police were called following the sudden death of a man in Corby yesterday (Tuesday).
Officers attended a house in Pages Walk yesterday afternoon after reports that a man in his 40s had died.
A spokesman for Northants Police said: "Police officers were called to an address in Pages Walk, Corby, yesterday at about 5.20pm, following reports of the sudden death of a man in his 40s.
“Detectives are keeping an open mind as to the circumstances surrounding this man’s death and await the results of a post-mortem which is due to take place later today.”
Police are still at the scene, with Pages Walk cordoned off.
A woman who lives nearby told the Northants Telegraph: "I saw someone lying on the street outside the house.
"It's a house that's been turned from a three-bed home to a six-bed home."
She said she saw six police cars in Pages Walk, which she described as 'a quiet street,' yesterday.
