An investigation is being carried out into the death of a man following police contact.
Officers were called to a report of a man causing significant damage inside a flat in Aikman Avenue, Leicester, just before 7pm last night (Thursday).
The caller was concerned about their own safety, as well as the safety of the person causing the damage.
On arrival officers detained the man, who became unresponsive, and CPR was carried out.
He was taken to hospital, where he sadly died just before 10pm.
A scene preservation was in place last night on the corner of Aikman Avenue and Pinder Road and has now been lifted.
We would ask any witnesses to make contact with us.
The incident has been referred to the Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC).
