Nottinghamshire police said they could not say whether the unidentified man was injured before or after he was arrested as an investigation is ongoing.

On Tuesday night, police cordons were still in place while a forensics team searched several areas.

Matt Farmer, of Newmarket Road, said: “Something very serious must have happened for him to have died.

“He came running naked out of the house which is not what you expect.

“It isn’t what you want the kids who are on half-term to see. The police have been all over the place all day - but I am not shocked because this is Bulwell and it happens.”

Engineer,- Richard Ngangulu, was not allowed to return to his home while police carried out their investigation.

He said: “I have been living here 10 years and I have never seen anything like this happen before.

“The police won’t let me in my home and won’t say when I can get in.

“All I know is that there was someone running around banging and smashing everything. It’s crazy.”
