The death of a 71-year-old man in Thetford has prompted a search for his next-of-kin.

The Norfolk Coroner's Service is trying to trace relatives of Alan Giles, who died in the town on December 7.

He is understood to have previously lived in Essex.

Mr Giles is believed to have had a sibling, but officials have failed to find them after an extensive search.

There were no suspicious circumstances to his death.
