One man, who lives nearby but did not want to be named, said: “It is horrible to think that someone has died, yeah. It’s not good at all.
“They keep themselves to themselves in that block, the people in there seem nice enough.
“I hadn’t heard anything, I’d seen a few ambulances and police around there over the last couple of days but I don’t know if that was to do with this.”
Another resident, who also wished to be kept anonymous, said: “It’s not a nice thing to think about. It’s relatively quiet around here and in this street so it’s strange to hear something like this.
“There’s been some policemen about and some police tape outside today.”
