THE death of a guest at a Portsmouth hotel is not being treated as suspicious.

Police were called to the Avenue Hotel in Twyford Avenue, Stamshaw, Portsmouth, by ambulance workers following reports that a man aged in his 60s had been found in a life-threatening condition there.

Despite attempts by medics, the man – who is not believed to be from the Portsmouth area – was later pronounced dead at the scene following the call out at about 11.25am yesterday.

It is believed he had been staying at the hotel alone.

The cause of his death has not yet been revealed.

However police are not treating it as suspicious.

A South Central Ambulance Service NHS Trust spokeswoman told The News: ‘We were called at 11.25am to an address on Twyford Avenue to reports of a patient in a life threatening condition.

‘An ambulance crew and a rapid response vehicle assisted at the scene.

‘The patient passed away at the scene.’
