A disabled man was found dead in his conservatory today after a blaze broke out in his bungalow.

The man, believed to be aged in his 60s, was discovered by a postman delivering his mail shortly after 11am at Church Close, Antingham, near North Walsham.

Police officers, paramedics and fire crews were called to the scene by a neighbour.

Fire crews from Mundesley and North Walsham found the fire was out by the time they arrived.

A police forensic team remained at the scene earlier today and the bungalow was cordoned off with two officers outside.

A spokesman for Norfolk police said: “The death is being treated as unexplained at this time.”

A spokesman for Norfolk fire service said it was thought the fire centred on a single location in the home and added: “We will be carrying out a fire investigation and working with police to establish the cause.”
