AN investigation is underway following the discovery of a man's body in North Yorkshire.

Police launched their probe after the body was discovered in a property in Malton.

They went to an address in the Maltings at around 11.20am on Monday, June 30, after being contacted by a friend of the resident who was concerned about the man’s welfare.

On arrival they found the body of a 49-year-old man who was pronounced dead at the scene.
