Forensic teams have been at the sheltered housing bungalow all day and a police guard is outside the address.

Dorset Police have said little about the on-going investigation, except to say they are treating the death as "unexplained".

The process of formal identification of the unnamed dead man is under way.

Shoppers in Broad Street, Lyme Regis, have contacted the Midweek Herald to say police were earlier today seeking information from passers-by outside Tesco.
