AN air ambulance landed in a Kidderminster park this afternoon before a man was found dead at a house nearby.

Emergency services were called to an address in The Foxholes at around 12pm.

Witnesses reported seeing three land ambulances and six police cars parked outside a property just after midday, and saw the air ambulance landing in Baxter Gardens Park.
