A police probe has been launched after a body was found inside a flat in Perth.
Police have been investigating after the man’s body was discovered in the Scott Street property in the early hours of Tuesday morning.
Locals saw a number of officers in the city centre street from around 5am on Tuesday and forensic officers have also been on the scene.

“I’m certainly shocked to hear of the circumstances.
“An officer was guarding the door on Scott Street and another resident told me the forensics had been here as well today.

One resident who lives in the block said police came to her door at around 5.15am.

Another local added: “I was aware the police have been here since the early hours of this morning and they’ve been in the area since.
“I didn’t know the circumstances but I certainly saw the forensic officers in attendance as well.”
