A 26-year-old man has been found dead in Kingston.

Police were called to Denmark Road shortly before 10pm yesterday to reports of a man found dead.

He was found in a house in Grebe Terrace, a short row of two-storey homes opposite Kingston Crown Court. 

The death is being treated as non-suspicious, a Metropolitan Police spokesman said, and the man's next of kin have been informed.

Neighbours said the man was discovered by family members, who called the emergency services. 

One added that the incident was "very distressing", and that the young man kept himself to himself. 

A London Ambulance spokesman said: "We were called at about 9.55pm to reports of an incident near Denmark Road.

"We sent a single responder by car and an ambulance crew to the scene.

"Sadly a man was found dead."
