An investigation has been launched into the "suspicious" death of 1970s sitcom actor Barry Evans, 52, star of the series, Doctor in the House, and Mind Your Language.

His body was found at his home in the village of Claybrooke Magna, near Lutterworth, Leicestershire, on Monday night. He is believed to have died sometime on Sunday.

Mr Evans is thought to have been unemployed and recently worked as a taxi driver. His body was found after police went to his house following the recovery of his white Montego car in the nearby town of Hinckley on Monday night.

Three people were arrested near the spot where the car was found and are being questioned on suspicion of murder.
