The body of a man believed to have been dead for more than five years has been found in a Bristol flat where a tenant continued to live.
The remains of Denis Pring were discovered on a sofa in the lounge after neighbours reported a foul smell.
Mr Pring, who would have been 73, was a lodger at the flat in Bedminster.
It is thought the flat's tenant failed to report the death because he suffers from mental health problems.
Bristol City Council has launched an internal inquiry to establish how the corpse went unnoticed for so long.
