Police were called at around 5:30am this morning (Tuesday, October 23rd) after a man, 34, had sadly been found dead in a house on Ivydale in the Skelmersdale area.

His death is currently being treated as unexplained and a post mortem examination will take place in due course.

DCI Zoe Russo from Lancashire’s Force Major Investigation Team (FMIT) said: “We are still in the early stages of our enquiries and at this moment our priority is establishing why this man, aged just 34, has suddenly died. We also need to notify the man’s family who we are currently in the process of tracing.
