The body was discovered at a shelter in Margery Street, Finsbury, yesterday (Tuesday) morning at about 7.15am.

The man, thought to be aged 41, was found dead at the scene by paramedics.

A spokesman for Islington Police said: “We were at St Mungo’s on an unrelated matter.

“It was brought to officers’ attention that there was a man believed to be deceased at the premises. London Ambulance Service was called and paramedics pronounced life extinct at 7.41am. At the moment, police are treating the death as unexplained.”

A post mortem was due to take place this afternoon.
