A 41-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the death, and investigations are ongoing.

Officers were called to Peel Croft, on Lichfield Street, shortly after 3am this morning by ambulance crews who were treating a man suffering from cardiac arrest.

He died shortly afterwards at the scene.

The rugby club has been cordoned off throughout the day and a practice which was due to take place there has been moved elsewhere.
