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.
