DETECTIVES are looking into the death of a 35-year-old Gosport man to see if it has been caused by taking legal highs.

Police and ambulance were called to an address in Rogers Close, at about 7.30am today.

A 35-year-old man was taken to Queen Alexandra hospital, in Cosham, where he was later pronounced dead.

Police say the death is not being treated as suspicious at this time.

Next-of-kin have been informed, but police say they will not be in a position to confirm his identity until all formal identification procedures are completed.

Investigating officer DS Liam Davies, of Fareham CID, said: ‘We are exploring the possibly that this death may be linked to “legal highs”.

‘We would like to take this opportunity to remind members of the public of national advice warning people that they can increase their risk of death if they combine drugs with alcohol or any substance that causes a ‘high’.
