The body of a man was found on the roof of a house in Barrio de Basurto in Bilbao. It was at 10.10h yesterday that a neighbour had noticed a man lying, without moving, on the roof tiles.

The emergency services arrived, including a fire engine with a ladder, to find that the elderly gentleman was in fact dead.

Although only an autopsy will determine the cause of death, it is believed the the effort to climb up onto the roof to carry out a task up there caused the man to suffer a heart attack.
