Body found in Southampton tower block


A man has been found dead in a Southampton tower block.

Police officers are currently on the scene at Millbrook Towers, following the discovery yesterday.

A witness has described how they saw officers descend on the tower a little after 1pm.

“We haven’t been told what has happened so hopefully, it is nothing serious.”

Hampshire Constabulary issued a statement on the incident yesterday.

It says: “We were called shortly before 10.30am on Sunday, October 8,  by our colleagues at South Central Ambulance Service, to reports of a 57-year-old man in cardiac arrest at a flat in Millbrook Towers, Southampton.

“The man’s death is not being treated as suspicious and a file will be prepared for the coroner in due course.”

One resident said: “We saw two cars approach the tower and thought someone was wrong.

Another added: “We see police cars up in this area quite a lot so it didn’t really make me stop and look.”
