Two 'unexplained' deaths in Boston

The bodies of two men have been found in separate incidents in a Lincolnshire town.

Ambulance crews called police to a property on Horncastle Road, Boston, at about 03:00 BST where a man, 74, had been found dead.

Lincolnshire Police are treating the death as unexplained, but said a 60-year-old man had been arrested.

On Tuesday, a 42-year-old man was found dead at a house in Union Road, Boston at 19:00.

The police said they were examining the possibility this unexplained death was drug-related and connected to that of a man, 22, whose body was found on Fenside Road on Saturday.

In a statement, the force said that the 42-year-old and 22-year-old men "had both been involved in the use of heroin and one line of inquiry is that they suffered an adverse reaction to a particular batch".
