Naked man found dead on steps of Surbiton flats

A man found dead outside a block of flats in Surbiton this morning was naked when he was discovered, residents have claimed.

The man, thought to have been in his 40s, was found on the steps of a converted mansion house in St Leonard's Road at about 6.25am.

Residents living in the block said the man was found naked, lying at the foot of steps leading up to the main entrance of the property. One woman who was woken when emergency services arrived said he may have been wearing shorts, or could have been covered over with a towel.  Several people said they believe the man may have fallen from a top floor window. Pigeon spikes that appeared to have fallen from a window sill on the top floor could be seen outside the mian entrance to the property.  

It is understood the dead man did not live in the property, and that the residents who lived in the flat where the man was believed to be staying were not at home at the time of his death.  A Metropolitan Police spokesman said officers were called at about 6.25am to reports of a man found injured.

He was pronounced dead at the scene. His death is being treated as non-suspicious.
